El Sistema Greece organizes a two-days seminar for music educators, drama educators, teachers and everyone who works with young children and would like to learn how to introduce them to the magic world of music!

El Sistema Greece: a musical education programme. Structure, function and techniques

José Ángel Salazar Marín, the Artistic Director of El Sistema Greece, will analyse the way in which El Sistema acts as a tool for social development through music. He will provide keywords representing the values and goals of the programme and he will present partticipants with some useful tools and techniques pertaining to the El Sistema methodology.

Developing the educational purposes of music through cross-curricular scenarios

During the first, experiential, section of the seminar, participants will take part in activities based on a cross-curricular approach to knowledge. Then, these activities will be analysed in order to set out the music education aims and methodology which, in turn, teachers and educators will be able to use to create their own programmes, thus, helping students to develop not only their music skills but also their language, communication skills etc.

Rhythm and composing music

Music education today emphasizes on the importance of rhythm, especially due to music approaches such as Orff and Kodály.
