Directed not just at music teachers, this workshop consisting of two, two-hour courses, shows first how to analyse a piece of music (in this case Ravel’s Ma Mère l’Oye), breaking it down so that pupils can better understand and then learn to play it. In the second session, we teach how to tell a story through music. Both sessions will be accompanied by pianists.
Ahead of Hay Festival Segovia, this event with British Council teachers involves creative tasks and activities to explore the works of English writing authors attending the festival this year.
