This integrative, creative and body-focused class allows kids the opportunity to explore music and instruments from all over the globe. Heidi Kirchofer acts as facilitator, storyteller and musician as kids discover new pathways of movement and expression. Through movement games, yoga and exploration of world dance, students strengthen connections to their bodies/selves and the world around them. World music will be introduced. Music making is focused around Himalayan singing bowls and African drums.
Matica's performance was raucous and good natured, alternately exciting their audience and calming them with music. The children were delighted by the vast array of exotic instruments and, without knowing it, got a terrific geography lesson. We would happily welcome Matica back to Hartford Public Library again and we encourage other libraries to have them.
