Today, the first day of the festival «Crie sua própria música!» finally kicked off. For three weeks, Nikolai and I are fully in charge of the whole music senter, consisting of just about two hundred students aged six to eighteen. We wanted to turn the whole center upside down, and decided to make a festival: «Create your very own music!».
So today, as the students arrived back from their vacation, they were met by something very different from the ordinary instrument lessons they are used to; All the children are being divided into small groups of five or six, and the task is as follows: Make a song or a musical piece together.
We are lucky to have all the teachers and the staff on our team, all eager to make this festival a fun and new experience for everyone. And eventually, soon after the carnival fuss settles in February, we will all gather for a final concert in São Carlos City Hall.
