Major Boost for Music Artists as Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum plans to host a Music Workshop
The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum will host a music workshop over 4 days from the 3 - 6 March 2015.
The presenters will be Madosini Lathozi Mpahleni and Pedro Espi-Sanchis who are international performers and last year alone visited France, Spain and Italy. Madosini is the best player of the Uhadi, Umhube bows and the Isitolotolo. Pedro specialises in using traditional instruments and was the music writer for new school textbooks published by Oxford University Press.
The workshop will cover the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) in Creative Arts (Music). The music workshop is designed to resource teachers with instruments and materials to cover many of the Music CAPS in Intermediate and Senior Phase. The approach is practical and fun. Participants will learn to make and play several traditional African instruments and learn to use some of those to teach the Rudiments of Music (Scales and Chords) and learn about the History of South African Music in the process.
