                        A Taste of Kecak: Balinese Vocal Gamelan

                                           Presented by Belinda Smith

                                           Year Level: Middle School, High School

Visit Bali using just your voice, where rhythms are part of nature and music is in the everyday. In this session participants will learn the basics of Kecak, a form of percussive vocal gamelan. Then we will use these ideas to create and compose. This session is secondary focused - for the topic Music of a Culture - but can be used for upper primary.

                                         Presented by Estêvão Marques

                                         Year Level: Early Childhood, Junior Primary

It is a meeting with the children's world of Brazilian popular culture.

Songs, dances and rhythms that are played in folk festivals are reinvented in the classroom.

Let's explore music games and melodies that tell stories. This is the great richness of folklore: he is always alive, being recreated in a creative way.

Thanks for listening.

                     Tinikling for the Z Generation

                                      Presented by Michael McConnochie

                                      Year Level: Middle School, High School 

Participants will explore the metre of 3/4 with a variety of activities before learning the intricate steps for the Polynesian Style dancing of Tinikling. The dance style involves dancers moving between two bamboo poles which are also moving at the same time. Coordination is key and being able to sync with the music is crucial. Once confident with 3/4 time we move into 4/4 hence bringing it to the Z Generation.
