If I were born in 1113, I would describe myself as an alchemist of music, but since I was born in the 20th century, I usually go by musician.
I have 12 years of experience teaching day-care and primary school children, youth and adults. I have completed a Master in Music Education at McGill University where I investigate the role of body in music creation and learning. I have organized for three school years music classes for children grade 1 to secondary 4 in a remote community in Nunavik.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

The workshop (also adapted for online platforms) supports a sensitive and dynamic relationship with one’s own body. As participants invent, interpret and appreciate musical rhythms created by their own bodies, they bolster their LISTENING SKILLS and their CREATIVITY.

Body Rhythms - Sequences involving coordination of upper and lower limbs introduced through a fun game of expression. - e.g. repeating the same sequence based on the following words: MINIMAL, FLAMBOYANT, ROBOTIC

Silent Rhythm - Each student performs a repetitive silent movement. Another student gives voice to what he/she “hears” by paying close attention to the quality of the movements.

Words&Rhythms - By repeating the words of a text in a loop, students discover their underpinning rhythm. The facilitator guides students to transform such rhythms in melodies and body percussion sequences.

Rhythms from Steps - Creation of a body percussion pattern by drawing an imaginative geometrical figure on the floor with the steps.
