Derek McKinley uses his voice, guitars, synths and a variety of drums and percussion instruments to show students how they can become a rockstar listener! Being able to listen extremely well is the key to a special musical performance and thus it is important to develop a keen sense of our hearing abilities. With a focus on how the body relates to different vibrations of sounds that create a range of feelings and sensations, participants are asked to pay attention to their bodies as they listen and perform different sounds. They are given the opportunity to choose a ‘fave sound’ that can be recalled and used in their everyday lives as a tool to tackle anxious feelings. The workshop culminates with a sound meditation in which the children contribute their own personal sounds created via the techniques learned in the workshop – examples include, beat-boxing, singing/humming, throat gurgles, etc.
