Music Workshops for Kids
How does a pop/rock band work? What does each instrument do? What is a pop song made of? The answer to these questions and more will be revealed during a series of workshops organized by Rocklab and hosted by the X-Ray Orchestra. School classes, Maison Relais and families can participate and learn some musical fundamentals in a fun and easy way.
On May 31 & June 01
From 14:00 to 16:00
At Rocklab (3rd floor of the Rockhal)
During several interactive and playful group exercises, the participants will thus get a closer look at how percussion (drums), voice and stringed instruments (guitar & bass) work and what lies behind such concepts as rhythm, melody and harmony. How to create a rhythm with body percussion, how to change the sound of a stringed instrument using guitar effect pedals, how to come up with the right backing vocals to support the lead singer - the X-Ray orchestra will tackle these and more elements during their demonstrations before recomposing an entire song live on stage during a small concert. Furthermore, Rocklab offers a guided tour of the Rockhal, where participants can catch a glimpse behind the scenes of Luxembourg's major concert venue and learn more about the different jobs that are involved when it comes to organizing a concert.
Target audience: school classes, Maison Relais, families with children aged 08 - 12
(31 May & 01 June, 20 participants max. per group)
