Living the Julliard Curriculum!

Our primary classes enjoyed a magical week during the Flute Festival last week with workshops, performances, and playing the flute - musical appreciation of one of the world's oldest instruments. 

  • Ms. A. Burrows
Last week our Primary students had a superb week exploring the world of the flute!  During music classes exploration of  “The Magic Flute” by Mozart included art, poetry, and creative interpretation through dance and sound as part of the Julliard Creative Classroom Curriculum! 
 
Thursday was a fabulous day as students had a workshop with Abigail Burrows, a renowned flautist and educator from the UK . Not only did they learn about the history of the flute (the oldest flute found is dated 46,000 years old!) and it's global presence, but also the three key things to develop to become a flautist.
 
The workshops focused on these key elements in various ways for each age group:
The physical self: strength and dexterity
Breath control

The Creative self: expression

Ms. Burrows passion for the instrument was infectious, and she had all the students playing a fife (beginners flute) by the end of the workshop!  

 

 'The drum and the flute are the worlds oldest instruments, but where a drum was developed for communication and as a rallying cry, the flute was developed purely for pleasure, creativity and expression.'  - AB

 
Finally, the students had the opportunity to see a concert at the Flute Festival in Gland!  These concerts were designed for children and proved as entertaining as they were educational.
