Mission Possible!  Messaging Sydney to Salzburg.
Alert: all telephones, computers and known transmission devices are down.  We need to find a new way to communicate an important message from Sydney to Salzburg!

 This session will demonstrate and provide participants with the opportunity of exploring different ways of introducing and playing instruments, leading a class ensemble, introducing notation, learning a simple piece of repertoire, arranging and improvisation via several forms of communication and movement.  This will be done following a theme throughout.

Via the use of exploration and discovery, these processes can be used as teaching and assessment tools.
