Experience

Schools and Kindergartens

Besides the many concerts, workshops and ensembles on offer to everyone, the Elbphilharmonie provides a special programme for schools and kindergartens.

School and Kindergarten Programme

The Elbphilharmonie’s School and Kindergarten Programme offers the opportunity to enrich and expand music teaching through workshops. Children and adolescents are able not only to peek behind the scenes of a major concert hall, visit a concert together or meet the artists in person, but also to participate themselves in making music!

ZukunftsMusik

»Actually, I wanted to be a doctor.« »My remedy for stage fright: singing.« When Hamburg school pupils ask top musicians questions about their classical music career, they are usually surprised by the answers. These face-to-face encounters are made possible by the ZukunftsMusik (Music of Tomorrow) fund, which has brought more than 10,000 children and young people together with international music stars over the last 10 years. Following discussions, workshops and/or rehearsal sessions, the school pupils are offered the chance to visit a concert in the evening and watch »their« artists perform live on stage.

Klassiko Orchester­instrumente

For school year 1 and above

Embark on an interactive journey through the classical symphony orchestra. In this course, children and adolescents learn all about the construction and performance of orchestral instruments ranging from the violin to the tuba, before trying them out themselves: under the helpful guidance of professionals, primary school pupils develop a melody and learn to accompany it on rhythm instruments. In addition to trying out the intruments themselves, elementary school pupils receive an introduction in acoustics – inclusive of exciting live experiments.

Duration: approx. 135 minutes (incl. guided tour and break)
Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

Classic Orchestra

Kosmos Percussion

For school year 1 and above

A sound expedition through the music cultures of five continents. In this workshop, children and adolescents discover percussion instruments according to their previous musical knowledge – all of the instruments having travelled several thousand kilometres just to be put to the test. Participants analyse the tonal similarities and differences in comparison to instruments they already know, and try the instruments under expert guidance. In small groups, the school pupils develop rhythms and melodies inspired from the different cultures, and present them to their classmates afterwards.

Duration: approx. 135 minutes (incl. guided tour and break)
Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

Cosmos Percussion

Kreativ Klangsafari

For school year 1 and above

On a sound safari through the Elbphilharmonie: we find exciting sounds not only in music on and behind the stage, but also in the walls of the brand-new concert hall. In this workshop, school pupils start off on an expedition with the aid of headphones and an iPad in small groups. Everything and anything they find acoustically interesting is recorded using a simple app. Then it is time to experiment with the sound material: according to the level of the school class, the school pupils learn all about electronic composition techniques like samples and loops, and produce their own experimental musical miniature from their collected tones!

Duration: approx. 210 minutes (incl. guided tour and break)
Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

Creative Sound Safari

Kreativ Komposition

For school year 3 and above

Whether it is Mozart’s »Eine Kleine Nachtmusik« or Adele’s pop hit »Hello« - behind every piece of music, with all its notes, words, sounds and beats, hides (at least) one creative mind. In this workshop, children and adolescents take the role of composers, conduct sound experiments, pick up different improvisation techniques from their workshop leader, and learn to compose their own musical piece. And all this with the aid of anything that can make a sound: from classical instruments in the rehearsal room, sound snippets on the computer and everyday objects to using their own body – anything is possible!

Duration: approx. 210 minutes (incl. guided tour and break)
Elbphilharmonie Kaistudios

A week-long, intensive Kreativ Komposition course led by Dr Ulli Götte takes place from 8–12 May 2017. It ties in with the »Maximal minimal« festival and includes a visit to the Steve Reich »Drumming« concert on 11 May 2017.

Creative Composition

Kosmos Gamelan

For school year 6 and above

For centuries, gamelan has united people in teamwork, because playing in an ensemble is not about standing out as an individual, but seeing oneself as part of a community. In this workshop, children and adolescents are invited to immerse themselves in the »Kosmos Gamelan« and make music using exotic Asian percussion instruments such as gambangs (xylophones) and kendangs (drums) under the guidance of an experienced professional musician.

Duration: approx. 135 minutes (incl. guided tour and break)
