Meet the Composer Workshops

BeethovensBadHairDay_Final-1In Kids Classics Meet the Composer workshops, participants are brought back in time with two musicians in period costumes to a day in the Composer’s Life. See what a day in their life entailed including traveling, rehearsing and composing and have the opportunity to meet him in person! Participants will then be invited to join in rehearsing some of the composer’s music with handheld percussion instruments.

The workshops incorporate the main strands of the primary music curriculum including listening, responding, performing and composing.
