Warming-up for a creative atmosphere

Warming-up for a creative atmosphere


Many pupils will not be ready to accept the freedom to create their own music, because simply they have never been asked to do such a thing.

Warm up can help a lot, you can use simple exercises like body percussion, passing the sound from one pupil to another, or a “raft”, any exercise will do, as soon it helps to create a feeling that everybody is equal to the others and reinforce the group collaboration. This phase is aimed to prevent pupils to “hide” behind their instruments, waiting for the scores to be played.

The positioning of the pupils is extremely important in this phase. Normally we can use the circle or semicircle, but it depends very much on the number of pupils. (Ten to fifteen is the ideal number for this kind of session).
