Pedagogy - Teaching method
The approach is based on many different streams of Music Education, drawing on the practice of “Community Music”. The main objectives are: learning through inspiration and a climate of collective joy, confidence in each person's voice and its coordination with the pluralism of the ensemble (through active listening), as well as fostering from every musical tradition that is the reference of the various members of the choir. Our tools in this effort of meaningful music and human interaction are animated singing and learning in sign language.
Specifically, non-verbal communication methods, suitable for multilingual groups, such as the “Kodaly” music teaching/ pedagogical method, the very creative technique of “Soundpainting” (the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists) and the practice of “Bodypercussion”, that is, to practice the rhythms with percussive sounds produced by the body, e.g. clapping and stroking.
In addition, practices from theater and visual arts are used, such as icebreakers, trust games, strengthening relationships, pantomime, and boards with the visualization of musical concepts. Other, more traditional musical tools include Solfege and reading music (gradual learning), as well as a wide variety of vocal warm-ups which lead to an awareness of body “speakers” and to the enhancement of the members' voice.
