Music & Movements with Marijke!
IMG_9721The Music Leadership training that lasted three days was often devoid of verbal sound, but was always overwhelmingly full of meaning and purpose. Each activity was an idea for a future lesson to be individually interpreted by the talented minds of the leaders. The workshops purpose was to provide additional tools to connect with children and enhance the use of music and movement to offer a safe and creative outlet of expression.  Working with Marijke, Fabienne and all of the MwB leaders was an experience in tolerance, understanding, adaptability, teamwork and leadership.
IMG_9722This is an incredible team of talented, dedicated and caring people who are amazing at balancing their roles as musicians, teachers and social workers.  I smiled often with the joy this class brought me, and with the admiration I felt for those involved.  I can only begin to imagine the satisfaction and enjoyment the children must get from their interactions with MwB and the outlets they provide for them.
