Mornings 9am to 11am: due to the present circumstances, the morning sessions “Learing to Listen” will be online.

 Opening ourselves to sound and tonal awareness, an anthroposophical approach.

This course/webinar will be offered as a series of on-line lectures, artistic activities and contemplations.

We will look at such themes as

  • The music of the spheres
  • An imaginative anatomy of the ear
  • The esoteric nature of music and tone
  • The evolution of consciousness in musical terms
  • Physical sound, Ensouled sound and Spirit sound
  • Our origins in a tonal world
  • The true meaning of silence

We will take the words of Rudolf Steiner as our guide.

The more we open ourselves in this course, the more we can expect to raise and fine-tune our own sound/frequency, bringing us to a place of healing and transformation.

Info:

The course will be held in ‘real time’, 9am-11am (AWST, UTC +8, Perth time), over 5 days: Sunday April 10 to Thursday April 14 2022.

The Art of teaching a life-filled music class.

Music instantly connects us to a well-spring of life, yet as teachers and students we are often faced with blocks that make music hard, a chore, dull and even frustrating. How can “music flow” translate into “learning flow”? -where lessons run smoothly and joyfully?

Together we will trace musical development from Waldorf classes 1-5 and learn how to effectively engage a class through:

*movement * creative round singing *rhythmic ostinato *improvisation *folk dancing *soundscapes *games *flashcards *fun warm-ups *in/out breathing *recorder *percussion *creative planning

Participants will receive repertoire and recordings of all material and an overview of musical focuses for each class. 

Participants will also receive a link to the on-line course “Learning to Listen” and are expected to take part. 

This additional course,  “Learning to Listen”, goes deeply into the anthroposophical basis of music in Waldorf Schools. It is recommended that participants do the course, “Learning to Listen” in the mornings before taking part live in “Creative Music Teaching” in the afternoons.
