Guildhall School of Music & Drama and ABC of Opera

Training and Workshop Program 2020/21

Funded by Dovedale Charity No. 1170157

Following on from the success of the ABC of opera workshops the GSMD are joining forces and embarking on an exciting collaboration. The program “ANY BODY CAN” will centre around live music and performance provided by undergraduate and post graduate students at the GSMD. We will travel the globe and find stories that have a significance to our young learners. Discover the richness and importance of music and celebrate individuality e.g., Einstein played violin; Jane Austen played piano; Charlie Chaplin composer; Ivan the Terrible a poet and composer, Bob Marley was a great soccer player, Neil Armstrong first astronaut to walk on the moon played the baritone horn. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone played the piano, Charles Dickens, English writer played the accordion etc.

The GSMD students and young learners will:

  • Confidently share their talents
  • Demonstrating and encouraging the natural joy of music making.
    Collaborate with young learners.
  • Deliver something that a classroom teacher (non-music specialism) can continue.
  • Lead inclusive activities with children engaging with their imaginations and physically
