Musical creation workshops

In the Musical Creation Workshops – a flagship initiative of the Auditorium-Orchestre national de Lyon – collective music making and a personal experience of the world of the orchestra are the focus of a long-term project.

Run in partnership with the Conservatoire de Lyon and the Rhône regional education authority, it is the only such project in France. It has been running for over 20 years and is constantly evolving over the years. Today, nearly 3,500 children have been able to take part in this extraordinary adventure alongside major French jazz or contemporary composers.

AN ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL EDUCATION PROJECT FOCUSED ON CREATION

Over and above the purely artistic aspect of the project, the Musical Creation Workshops address learning objectives that are specific to artistic and cultural education: the development of cognitive skills, verbal ability, the acquisition of formative concepts in the child’s development, and so on. They provide an ideal opportunity for the child to grow and develop through music making, discovering a totally new universe, listening to others and learning to use their body and their voice in a group. What sets the Musical Creation Workshops apart is their very specific learning objective, namely to create music. The composer weaves the children’s musical contributions into the final score. All have an important role to play in the process of composing the music.

The teachers are the project supervisors in their class, tasked with turning this adults’ project into a fully-fledged class project. They give this project a key role in the class; they make it trickle into all of the lessons taught and they ensure that the various actions (workshops, gatherings) have a consistent learning focus.

A YEAR IMMERSED IN THE WORLD OF MUSIC

For each new edition, 150 children from three elementary schools in the City of Lyon are trained in a process of musical creation alongside a composer. A number of major events are dotted through the year :

  • MUSIC-MAKING WORKSHOPS IN THE SCHOOLS

Right from the start of the school year, the children take part in a weekly music-making workshop in their school, led by a trained musician from the Lyon Conservatory. The musicians pass on fundamental skills to the pupils, stimulating their creativity, teaching them the basics of music, how to move and how to sing. The workshops are also fertile ground for musical creation and the composer often adds the pupils’ input to the final score.

  • MEETING MUSICIANS FROM THE ORCHESTRA

Each schools works with a group of musicians from the Orchestre national de Lyon. The pupils generally meet the musicians in December, then see them again once a month until the concert. After having presented their instruments and their jobs, the musicians then help the children rehearse in the workshops.

  • MUSIC CLASSES

The music classes, held from January to March, are the high point of the project, when the children are immersed in the day-to-day life a major concert venue. At that time of the year, the children have already been working on their musical composition since September. Once the initial groundwork of the project has been mapped out, the music class familiarises the children with the venue where they will be giving their concert and make considerable progress with the composer’s writing of the score.

Within the bounds of a typical school week, the children’s timetable revolves around the musical creation. There are rehearsals - attended by the musician and the composer - and workshops to learn about the instruments of the orchestra. The children also sit in on some orchestra rehearsals and are lucky enough to meet the conductor who is leading that week’s concert and ask him/her their questions.

After the music classes, the children continue working with the teachers, the musicians involved in the project, the musicians in the Orchestre national de Lyon and the composer. The latter generally presents the final score in around March.

  • THE CONCERT

The project concludes at the end of the school year with the children’s concert on the stage of the Auditorium de Lyon. Two performances are scheduled: the first in early afternoon for an audience of school children (including the classes that will take part in the project the year after); the second in the evening, for the children’s families and the Auditorium’s audience. Rehearsals, including a dress rehearsal, are held before the concert so that the pupils can familiarise themselves with the stage area.
