The Nordic-Baltic countries have a rich tradition of great folksongs, full of emotion and clear-cut beauty. A repertoire you should surely sing in your own choir too!

Working with Children 1: Choral Singing in Schools and Motivating Children
Kadri HUNT (EE)

Children usually come to choir rehearsals after long schooldays. So the first task of the conductor is to draw the attention of the tired young singers, to „wake them up“, to motivate. During this lecture I will suggest some possibilities of trying some new approaches to make the choir rehearsals „fresh“. Could we encourage the singers to use their phantasy there, perhaps to combine the use of the voice with physical movements or make use of instruments that our singers might study? Let us try to phantasize and play with music together!
