what I do
I offer educational curriculums which include different games, plays, and scenarios using my own approach to understanding rhythm, music and orchestration. Due to interactions with different fields such as philosophy, pedagogy, coaching, or management, I have developed a rhythmic and metaphoric play “school of rhythms” which enables any group of people to co-create and perform their own orchestra, utilizing movement, singing , and spectrum of percussions instruments. The game consists of four rounds, according to its internal rhythm: inspiration, imitation, improvisation and innovation. It is meant to carry out the learning experience of developing core values, attitudes, and skills for personal and social life.
*BACH TO AFRICA RHYTHM GAME* A music based educational game and metaphor for teachers/educators/art therapists. As an educational tool, it is meant to support children and young people in personal and social growth. The game illustrates, fosters, and promotes core values/attitudes/skills for life, utilizing metaphor-thinking and acting on rhythmic methods and plenty of ethnic percussion instruments.
*LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT BY VALUES* A simulation game designed for the corporate world and for social leaders. This game creates inspirational learning experiences and is meant as a tool to foster leadership and managerial skills. It illustrates scale of themes such as: common good, team-building, cooperation, talent management, strategic thinking, empowerment, creativity/innovation, and organizational culture.
*DRUMS AND MORE ORCHESTRA* An integration workshop utilizing drums and a collection of percussion instruments from all over the world. It provides joyful energy and a sense of community during company meetings, conferences or cultural events.
