The four elements

Czech Philharmonic

What does a mute do?! What about valves – are they like the kind in a car engine?! What holds a reed on a clarinet?! And what is a slide if it’s not on a playground?! What is the difference between a muzzle and a mouthpiece? Our second afternoon together will reveal all of the tricks to playing wind instruments! And if you know how to play the flute, don’t forget to bring one along!

We begin each encounter in the Suk Hall at the Rudolfinum, where we draw the children and their teachers into the topic for the entire morning with a playful format. The group programme is always connected with 3–4 interactive workshops (for smaller groups of pupils) full of topically interrelated vocal, movement, instrumental, and visual arts activities. In addition, you can look forward to the traditional concluding – and this time definitely elemental – musical five-minute session.
