Activities at Nea Makri Agia Marina Elementary School

 

SOS Children’s Villages Greece

Continuing our long term cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages Greece, M art organizes weekly rhythm and movement workshops for children at the elementary school of Nea Makri Agia Marina.

 

In an effort to bring back the smiles to the residents of the affected areas by the wildfires last summer, we meet every Saturday and fill the classrooms with music, movement and laughter.

 

Following the educational method introduced by Carl Orff, the young participants use their bodies as well as other percussion instruments to acquaint themselves with the basic idea of rhythm.  The children play musical and kinetic games in order to coordinate their movement and act as a team. They work together and produce rhythmic sounds using as a primary source their own bodies.
