We then taught them how to breathe together.

• quick Introduction of Christy quickly, and then she started playing Bach Bouree I and II.


Christy introduced herself and the kids askedquestions.

10-15 min


Everybody listened very carefully while Christy was playing. They observed every movement.

Especially Ar seemed absorbed into the music.

During the question round, they asked her many questions, from how long she’s been practicing” tohow old she is and how long her education takes.


Question: how violin and cello are different?

All kids were genuinely interested and they made remarks while asking questions. 


Christy, played Bach a second time, and thekids had to write/draw what they thought she was feeling.

 See attachments: drawings

All of them agreed there are parts in the music that are happy, sad, or even a bit scary.


° TANPA PERASAAN (Impassive game)


Christy played again and the kids had to try to distract her from her playing, but she had to continue.

2 min


In first place the kids were a bit shy, they didn't really know what to do. 

After a few minutes, especially when thier teacher Uli started to play too,  they started to have more fun, they moved in a circle around Christy in order to make funny faces. But they still looked awkward.

E and Al hid behind the tables, they didn't want to join.
