Mazion leads music workshop
Sharon Mazion, Lower School music instructor and Performing Arts department head, traveled to Greenville, S.C., to lead a two-day guest-musician workshop with students at Christ Church Episcopal School followed by an all-day hands-on teacher workshop for music teachers.
The workshop provided teachers with ideas and strategies to build collaboration skills among students through creative and fun musical explorations. Teachers were engaged in singing, movement exploration and playing classroom instruments to explore various avenues of improvisation. The work with students at Christ Church provided the context for the adult experiences in the workshop. Students were engaged in learning a xylophone piece and creating movement machines. You can see an example in the video below!
This workshop was presented by the American Orff Schulwerk Association.
