Lucie is coming back to Devon this summer to lead choir in our teenager course in June (T1) in Dartington!
First a huge thank you, Lucie, as it is a real joy to work with you! Lucie is a naturally talented teacher not to say a fantastic composer, singer and musician! but also -with her availability- she is going to save the life and ears of the students in Dartington: in fact they didn’t know but they were running the risk of having myself as choir director and singer……. so, enjoy, dear students! now the risk is over -at least for this summer- and you will be very happy with Lucie’s tutoring. Who is Lucie, some of the new participants might ask.
Rather than speaking about her I much prefer recall the videoclips taken during her choir workshops last June and… redirect you to her website were you can actually see and listen and -if you like it- buy her music. So, click on the following links to see her in action in AEL, to experience her music and to watch her YouTube channel.
Why music has a relevant part in the AEL courses (as well as drama)? Simple: because music is life, drama is life. And life is innately related to the language. A language is a special kind of music, a special tool for life!
Learning a second language opens the mind and soul of a learner as well as her social horizon and self-confidence. Music and drama are constantly included in our course design, not just as a final touch or a ‘flag for bees’: it is about nurturing the two basic roots of learning!
This summer our students will have lots of music, lots of drama, lots of English and lots of fun! I look forward to welcoming our students in the UK soon!!! vr
