AIM:  The singing creativity classes designed by Concettina – Nella Luce Studio are about combining a planned program with an improvised program. The planned work can be changed or blended with a fluid approach where the studio teacher is responding to the students. The program is flexible and students are encouraged to be spontaneous.The creative process promotes creative thinking skills e.g. solving problems.  The program  and or project is a work in progress and requires Concettina to be a participant and facilitator in the learning process and take notes,  provide feedback,  take photos or videos. (permission is asked from parents for the teacher to take photos – included in the enrolment form)

Studio teacher, Concettina Gangemi aims to nurture your true self through the small group classes from the early years.  Concettina’s  goal is to nurture creativity, coach in the arts and compliment the NSW educational curriculum through the arts whilst making learning fun, meaningful and authentic. The following flexible learning process  facilitated by Concettina is encouraged during the workshops:  Inspiration is presented, explore, create, make and reflect individually and/or as a small group or a larger group.  We conclude with a formal reflection time.  Scores are left in the classes but printed words will be given out where necessary.

  • Be inspired, create, make and explore and reflect.

SCHEDULE  (flexible plan & might be changed)

Week 4 is about getting to know the group.  Setting our group goals and introducing the families to some songs, and song games.
