Music Studio/Atelier for young artists

The Music Studio is prepared by Ramona Schulz and Magdalena Chrzová specially for the Youth Program of Ameropa 2018. In Prague, Miloslava Vítková will participate in the Music Studio in the part of choral singing. Teachers' CVs can be found on Ameropa websites »»»

The Music Studio in Brandys nad Labem, a creative program for children under the age of 14, will be held every day in 90-minute blocks. Children will be divided into two groups according to their age. Children in the Music Studio in Brandýs nad Labem will explore together the places where individual arts touch, meet and intertwine each other. Inspired by European fine arts and music, we will look for our own expressive language. We will use all of our skills - movement, speech, singing, playing a musical instrument. Inspiration based on paintings, music, rhythm, dance and language will lead us to unexpected and surprising ways.

The Music Studio in Prague will also be open to all those are interested in choir singing as well as for those who want to continue with creative activities from Brandýs. The content of the week in Prague will be similar to that of Brandys, but it will focus more on choir singing. Studied compositions will be in both languages - Czech and English. We expect the interest of foreign students. The choral parts can be attended by all who like to sing and find time in the program at the time of Music Studio - choral singing. This Music studio is not only for the participants of the Youth Program.

The Music Studio Concerts will take place on Saturdays of each week of the Youth Program:
-21. 7. at 3 pm in the courtyard of Brandýs Castle.
-28. 7. at 10 am in the area of the Convent of Saint Agnes in Prague within the weekend project of the international music festival "Praha, klasika.. / Prague, Classics.." Here the audience will look at the results of the work of the 1st Chamber of America. Here, listeners will be able to see the results of the 1st Chamber Week of Ameropa.

Our meeting is limited by the number of participants. Depending on age and language options, we divide the children into 2 groups. Music Studio groups and art activities will take place in the afternoon and independently so that children can participate in both programs.

Art Studio "25 YEARS of AMEROPA"

The art studio will be held every day of the festival after 90 minutes in the afternoon. As part of the art studio, it is possible to try non-traditional or combined art techniques, which will make children entertained and also enrich and test their skills.

This year's Ameropy is exceptional - the 25th anniversary of the courses. We will also contribute to the celebration of this amazing jubilee with the following art activities:

Not only with children, but also with faculty, we will create Memorial Tree of Ameropa. How? Very easy! On a large canvas we paint a tree with a large number of branches with acrylic paints. Each student and faculty of Ameropa draws, cuts and colors his outline of his own hand according to their ideas. Hands will then be stuck to individual branches like tree leaves. The tree will thus remind this amazing event.

Ameropa medallions will be created by children from ceramic self-drying mass. They will have the shape of different musical instruments. After drying they will be colored with acryl colours. These handmade medallions can be used as original souvenirs for the anniversary of the festival or as a souvenir gift for concert visitors.

Hand-decorated gingerbreads. The third technique will be decorating of small gingerbreads in the shape of hearts and cloverleaves. Inspiration will be Czech national folk motives. Tasty, children-decorated gingerbreads will be offered to visitors as little attention at annual concerts.

Create, play and print beautiful notes

Young people who love their computer and love music would like to write music too. Nowadays, they will definitely be looking forward to learning to write music in the music program "MUSESCORE". This program they can install for free on the home computer. Our faculty will learn the „Musescore“ program - from basic techniques to better control of the program. At the end of the training program, they will receive a performance rating certificate based on a successful test.
