And don't shy away, because you'll have to play your turn. Fasten your seatbelts!

Guided tour

3rd-6th grade

During this workshop, you will get to know musical instruments from all over the world. Learn how to send a message with the 'talking drums' from Africa, play the rhythms on the Javanese gamelan with gongs and metallophones.  Travel to the roof of the world to admire the giant trumpets of the Tibetan monks and have a go at them. You get to play the back and forth of an accordion and touch the strings of the bumblebee! In the Atelier, you can practise playing the djembe, the dumdum or the tambourine, and make music from all over the world together with your classmates.
