Free Youth Arts Class

The Music presented in this program will consist of traditional children’s songs from around the world and Jazz, presented in an age-appropriate interactive way.
This will afford exposure to music children might not otherwise be familiar with. We will learn “Suzume Odori”, a Japanese song about a bird, design fans from paper plates for our wings and dance and drum to this song. Children will travel from Chicago to LA on “Route 66” and partner with a friend on “Inanay” (an Australian song from the Straight Torres Islands). Activities with percussion instruments such as rhythm sticks or egg shakers help kids with rhythm development. A song like “So Danço Samba” invites children to contribute their own ideas. A song everybody knows like “Frére Jaques” can be used to deepen part/round and harmony singing or singing on an ostinato.
Gabriele Tranchina is musically at home in many styles. With a strong background in jazz, she moves between Jazz, Latin and World Fusion, making her a perfect crossover artist.
Gabriele has her roots in Germany, where she was born, but her love for other cultures inspired her extended travels throughout Europe and Asia.
These experiences bring a unique sensibility to her work, matching her one-of-a-kind voice. Settling in New York, Ms. Tranchina took advantage of its multi-cultural environment, giving her further inspiration for her work as an artist.
