Community Music to work with people forced on the move.

I've had the pleasure of working with amazing institutions like Musicians Without Borders for their projects: Welcome Notes with the 2 times per year Training: Mit Musik Gemeinschaft erleben / Community Music Training - Ein 5-Tage-Seminar des Projektes IN.DI.E Musik and Landesmusikakademie NRW where we focus on MWB's approach to community music and the work with people on the move. But also with the project Soy Música in El Salvador and The Music Bus in The Netherlands.

Community Songwriting

This is one of my special areas of work in Community Music. I have been giving trainings and workshops for professionals searching for a tool of self expression that can be used to discuss, learn and educate about different social topics. For example Children's Rights. My latest training on the topic has been the Songs for Rights Training of Trainers at the Landesmusikakademie Berlin. To know more about this training click here:
