Have you had a look at Music for Canberra’s Music Play class lately with Emma Zen? Times are a-changing – this class was all about nature!

We read ‘The Old Man Who Loved to Sing’ by John Winch and found our singing voice, created a stone symphony with pre-instrumental notation, moved like Australian animals and played our chime bars together in a pentatonic circle.
