International Course of Elemental Music Making in Practice and Theory

Elemental Music Making is the artistic form of music making specific to Elemental Music Education. It seeks to provide essential and diverse musical experiences for all age groups, from toddlers to seniors, and on all musical levels.
Elemental Music Making draws upon the relationships and interactions between music, language, movement and sound visualisation. It facilitates diverse ways of artistic expression and musical creation.

The International Course addresses musicians, music pedagogues and pedagogues with a strong musical interest and background who want to qualify in Elemental Music Making and its pedagogy. Special value is placed on the participants’ personal aesthetic and artistic experience and development. This constitutes the basis for gaining methodical- didactical insights and developing craft skills. 
Teaching practice groups enable participants to transfer their own experience into their work with groups. The participants are encouraged to transfer their experiences to the specific needs of their own professional backgrounds and cultures.
