PRESENTER: HELENE ALBRECHTAccording to Zoltán Kodály, the famous Hungarian composer and music educator, singing and pulse are fundamental human skills that provide access to creative music making to everyone. In order to approach Kodály’s ideas we will move and dance to music and use our singing and thinking voice with help of solfege hand signs. By the end of our session children will be able to safely distinguish pulse from rhythm, to apply the first five solfege syllables and know a couple of new songs and dances that might also enhance their instrumental playing.  Helene Albrecht (BMus, CPPE) is trained as piano teacher in Aachen, Germany. Starting from her instrument she has explored teaching in a variety of institutions from nurseries to higher education in order to develop a coherent and developmental approach to music making for all age groups. Helene is also a keen pianist and accompanist and currently works as choir master and organist for a church in Camden, London.
