                      Batucada Song
                                        Presented by Estêvão Marques

                                        Year Level: Early Childhood, Junior Primary, Primary, Middle School

A Workshop to play and create musical arrangements in group. Sing, dance and have fun!

The rhythm is related to the time of each syllable in the song. We will be able to hear the melody, in the sounds of body percussion.

It starts with simple challenges and little by little the game becomes more challenging. You will find songs that are part of the repertoire of children's games, traditional songs from different countries and songs composed by Estêvão Marques.

Music is full of patterns so why not have some fun making them into musical codes. In this session we will explore using different code keys to create musical patterns. Rhythmic, melodic and improvised codes will be cracked through singing and playing before taking our codes online to inspire digital compositions. Finally we will investigate how to save our codes so they can be shared or displayed in an interactive way.

By the end of this session, participants will have the opportunity to experience:

• Cracking musical codes using rhythm and pitch.

• Exploring different code keys and the possibilities they offer different stages of learning.

• Working collaboratively to create and perform new codes.

• Using Hook Theory to create a digital composition based on codes.

• Creating QR codes to use in interactive displays
