The aim of Youth in Music is to create and strengthen our community that, through the development of specific skills related to music, learns to collaborate, communicate and overcome the barriers of prejudice, stereotype and cultural ones, with the aim of rediscover ourselves as members of a single close-knit group. This project proposes a model that can create a real transformation in the social relations of a community, such as the possibility of cultural production in a collective way, through artistic experiences that highlight music, with the final result of cultivating a community capable of building collectively, in a few days, a unique event, an „Improvised Concert” In „Music for EU-ths”, rhythm and improvisation become the tools through which skills, relationships, and roles necessary for collective construction are developed, to transform a group of people into a group of artists who take care of their compositional framework.
We will work on the development of new musical techniques, discovering how to make music together through improvisation, at the base of which there is listening to the other, the recognition and respect of others’ musical-personal space and personal harmonious putting into play: elements that, combined, create a work of the whole, the final result of which depends on the union of the sounds of each one, each different and each of a personal inestimable value.
During the activities we will work on a method that will include the sharing of one’s feelings, the comparison and the capacity for self-assessment which will increase the process of becoming aware of the skills developed.
If you want to see with your eyes what’s going to happen in Capranica, give a look at the videos we shot during our previous Youth Exchange:

In the beginning we will do Ice Breaking and Team Building activities to facilitate the connection between the Participants. We will learn how to do music with and without instruments. We will learn how to build and use percussion instruments and we will experiment collective musical composition. We will experiment the different roles of musician and improvisation director and we will discover and deepen the „Rhythm with Signs” method, implementing musical composition in real time, the integration of sung texts, music direction and the use of musical signs. We will approach music theory and we will record our music sessions.
We will also have the “Improvised Concert”, a unique event in which the local population will also be involved. During our visit in Rome we will also have the chance to improvise and make music with local very experienced musicians!
