Peter and The Wolf  (Grades 2-6)

Peter and The Wolf  (Grades 2-6)

For generations, Peter and The Wolf has introduced children to the instruments of the orchestra. The genius of Prokofiev’s symphonic fairy tale is that it wears its learning lightly. Inspired music and compelling storytelling add up to a captivating experience and, along the way, you happen to learn the distinctive tone colours of the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horns, strings and timpani.

Thursday 9 August, 11:30am
Federation Concert Hall

Workshops for Teachers

Workshops for Teachers

TSO presents Professional Learning Workshops for Teachers of  Primary Music with the Tasmanian Department of Education

Di O’Toole will lead workshops to introduce teachers to a number of new resources, with a focus on orchestral music, that have been developed under the auspices of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Education Program. Practising Tasmanian teachers were commissioned to write resources for their colleagues, both within the state and further afield.  The free resources are concept-based and explore musical ideas through age-appropriate activities in singing, playing, moving, listening, commenting and creating, and align with the Music National Curriculum.

2017 Workshop in Launceston for DoE teachers.
