                     Chitlins, Carne and Clave

                                       Presented by Amber Thomas

                                       Year Level: Primary, Middle School, High School

In this session, participants will learn through playing, improvising and analysing a minor blues piece: Chitlins Con Carne by Kenny Burrell. You are welcome to bring your own instruments! This session reflects one of my favourite lessons to teach, as part of a current Jazz unit. It would be useful for those teaching students from Year 7-10. This is a great piece that reinforces a minor blues, 12-bar structure and has useful links to many other Jazz works. There will be time for some group 'remixes' too!

                       Why I Love Australia

                                          Presented by Lisa Woods

                                          Year Level: Early Childhood, Junior Primary, Primary

The session 'Why I love Australia' will take you on a journey of belonging; through the colours, shapes and sounds that are intrinsic to our own special places in this beautiful country. 

Explore your senses as you move, dance, listen and play your way across the landscapes of Australia. Be inspired by Australian literary and musical texts to develop artworks that reflect the places closest to your heart. 

This session will have a meditative atmosphere while providing elemental resources for use with any age group. It will focus on using the voice, body percussion, simple percussion instruments and improvised movement to express feelings and responses to beautifully Australian stimuli; including modern orchestral music and high quality picture books.

At the end of the session you will take home a graphic score of your own special place in Australia - and perhaps a few wonderful ideas for your next holiday destination!
