Kids at the Con January school holiday workshops

Information

The Open Academy, Sydney Conservatorium of Music presents the fun and interactive Kids at the Con holiday workshops this January 2022!

The Kids at the Con workshops are designed to help children between the ages of 3 and 10 engage with the exciting world of music, in a challenging but non-competitive environment which encourages the development of artistic expression and creativity. No prior experience necessary!

Children will explore the world of music through activities including singing, imitation, movement, playing tuned and un-tuned percussion instruments, improvisation, story-telling, guided listening activities and musical games. It's also a great way to try and see what our popular weekly Kids at the Con program is like!

Enrolment is open now! Places are limited, so visit the website to book your place today! We look forward to seeing you at the Con very soon.

- Continue to avoid physical greetings, wash your hands regularly and practise cough etiquette (coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue)

For the 6-10yrs old Holiday Workshops:
- students should be dropped off by parents, with parents directed to immediately leave only returning 5-10 min prior to the end of the class to pick up their child.
- students are to remain in room for the duration of the workshop.
- mask wearing is mandatory for tutor/s (unless singing), and I strongly recommend the students wear a mask where appropriate (walking to bathrooms, shared spaces, and foyer areas).

For 3-4yrs old Holiday Workshops (on 18, 19 Jan):
- to minimise distributions and delays between class change over, parents/guardians sit in the classroom (duration of the lesson is 45 minutes).
- Only one parent/guardian attends with the child (no siblings or relatives) to ensure room capacities are not exceeded.
- Wipes will be provided to parents at end of lesson for them to wipe down their own chair and other surfaces.
- mask wearing is mandatory for tutor/s (unless singing), and I strongly recommend the students wear a mask where appropriate (walking to bathrooms, shared spaces, and foyer areas).
