Duration of the programme 2 hod
For preschools and schools


Playful musical workshops will introduce us to the untamed, all-powerful elements: fire, air, water, and earth – four encounters and the four basic elements that work together to form life on the planet Earth. Why? Because every musician is a bit of an alchemist who is also trying to mix the right musical elements together to make music sound like it should. Sometimes it’s literally a science, but it’s always a great adventure!

We begin each gathering in Suk Hall at the Rudolfinum, where we playfully draw the children and teachers into the morning’s topic. Connected with the joint programme, there are always at least three workshops for smaller groups of pupils that are full of singing, movement, playing instruments, and art activities. In addition, you can look forward to the traditional concluding five-minute musical quiz – and this time it will definitely be elemental.

So many strange words – mute, valves, reed, slide… What does it all mean? What about embouchure? At a second afternoon together, we learn the tricks of all the wind instruments!
