Take Part at Home with our New Digital ResourceWed 10 June 2020
We’re delighted to introduce Take Part At Home, our unique collection of free digital resources for the whole family, expanding the ways in which we connect with our wider community while they’re at home.
As London’s Creative Conservatoire, we are committed to providing opportunities for people to encounter dance and music. Our free online resources are specifically designed to enable individuals and families of all ages to engage with us in creative ways.
From light-touch, bite-sized dance activities to deep-dives into the listening experience, the wealth of bespoke music and dance learning resources and creative activities includes:
- weekly creative tasks for young musicians with a chance to be showcased on Trinity Laban’s website and social media channels
- home learning packs that introduce young children and their families to pieces of music by Beethoven, Rimsky-Korsakov, Dvorak, and Brahms. The downloadable PDFs – accompanied by a Spotify playlist – have background information, tips for closer listening and creative exercises to encourage music-making.
- a range of short dance activities designed for the home environment. With simple-to-follow instructions children, young people and families can dip in for 15 minutes of fun or expand and link to create movement and develop dance skills.
- free online course Massive Open Online Course ‘Making Music with Others’ which enables adults to reflect on music-making activities and their interactions with other musicians.
- a sequence of warm-up videos for dance and movement.
- a selection of short films focusing on breathing and singing exercises that engage the mind and body and promote good lung health.
- a guided vocal meditation for adults to find calm through breathing and gentle singing.
Head of Public Engagement Veronica Jobbins MBE comments –
“Created by our talented team of music and dance artists, we hope this digital resource will bring joy and creativity, and support and encourage people to continue to engage with Trinity Laban while they are at home.”
