WARSZTATY TWORZENIA MIĘDZYNARODOWEJ MUZYKI z Joan Litman (New Jersey, USA) / 17-18 marca / ZAPISY JUŻ RUSZYŁY! :)

  • WARSZTATY WSPÓŁTWORZENIA MIĘDZYNARODOWEJ MUZYKI z Joan Litman (New Jersey, USA)
     
    (english below)
     
    Zapraszamy na wyjątkowe warsztaty pełne muzyki i zabawy z muzyką. Stwórzmy wyjątkowe i niepowtarzalne, bo nasze własne kompozycje – poprzez pieśni, taniec i tradycyjne ludowe gry
    i zabawy wokalne.
    Bazą do naszych wokalno-instrumentalnych poszukiwań będzie muzyka z północnej Ameryki – (włączając w to pieśni z obszaru anglo-afrykańskiego, rdzenno- amerykańskiego i z rejonu Karaibów).
     
    Warsztat również obejmie czarujące dziecięce piosenki i ludowe gry muzyczne z Meksyku, Brazylii Nowej Zelandii, Japonii oraz Bliskiego Wschodu.
    Przedstawiony repertuar będzie się głównie opierał na śpiewaniu pieśni. Granie na instrumentach nie jest wymagane, ale mile widziani będą gitarzyści, perkusiści oraz inni instrumentaliści, którzy chcieliby przyłączyć się do nas ze swoimi instrumentami aby wspólnie stworzyć oryginalne pieśni.
    Nowatorska metoda pracy Joan ułatwi nam szybką naukę tekstów w obcym języku.
    Wszyscy uczestnicy dostaną nuty z tłumaczeniem oraz fonetyką.
     
    Zapowiadają się 2 dni pełne muzyki… – Jak wiemy muzyka łagodzi obyczaje, leczy duszę, daje radość… A już wspólne śpiewanie i tworzenie muzyki daje tego całego dobra dwa razy więcej. Przyjdźcie, razem wyczarujmy śpiewem niepowtarzalne muzyczne światy. Nie może Was zabraknąć! 🙂

    International music making workshop
     
    This presentation will offer two joyful days of international music
    making; in song, dance, and with traditional singing games.
    Repertoire will feature well loved music of the United States,
    including, Anglo and African American, Native American, and
    Carribbean songs. The workshop will also present enchanting
    children’s songs and singing games from Mexico, Brazil, New
    Zealand, Japan and the Middle East .
    All of the repertoire presented will be based in song. Playing an
    instrument is not necessary, however guitarists, percussionists and
    other instrumentalists are welcome to bring their instruments and
    join in; enriching the fabric of these songs and making them uniquely
    their own.
    Language helps and enjoyable pedagogical strategies will ease the
    challenge of learning the lyrics of lesser familiar (or unknown)
    languages!
    All participants will receive scores, with translations and
    pronunciation guides.
