Group Music Sessions – Program ARTON
Group music sessions meet us with the challenge at the same time to keep the focus of the children on the musical task and to follow their spirit of initiative. This inevitably meet us with the theme of chaos. When children of different ages are gathered in a free and open group often exists experience on eruption - sometimes by feelings of joy, sometimes with feelings of anxiety and aggression. Together through the language of music, children develop new experience for communication and interaction.
The challenge for the leading music therapist is to work with this child "chaos" and to model the heightened emotions into something that works for the group. This productive creative chaos brings the children excitement, vitality and a sense that something strongly emerges from their playing and it brings them liberation. Together in the therapeutic experience of the music session, children create order out of chaos by uniting their rhythms.
