Music Making is an Adventure best shared.

Thought I would share the Introduction with you from the “String Things Level 2” This is the teaching method used in the classroom and small groups across 14 Catholic Primary Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta, Western Sydney. Authored by Phil Rooke:

“Learning music should be an adventure; a discovery of history and culture, as well as learning new and exciting skills and feeling a great sense of achievement. Learning to play a musical instrument is also about learning self-discipline and enjoying music-making together in ensembles; whether it is with a friend as a duet, with some friends on guitar, piano & drums playing Jazz or Folk music or with a whole string orchestra at your school, it is an exciting adventure that is always best when it is a shared experience.” Excerpt from the Introduction of “The String Things Method Level 2″Image
