Tøyen satser på orkester

 

 

 

Close to downtown Oslo is Tøyen School. It is a primary school with about 350 pupils. 97 % are minorities from many different countries.

During the autum of 2009 I started the work to establish sa musicproject at Tøyen School

This project was built on previous models I had done, the difference being that we involved all instruments and also the school.

Our hope was in the end to be able to create a full symphony orchestra.

As of juni 2016 all children from 3- 7 grade are involved in the orchestra playing an instrument.

We offer teaching on trumpet, flute, violin, cello, percussion, low brass and clarinet.

 

It is also possible for the children to come back to school in the afternoon to get lesson on their instrument or to practice.

There are a close contact between instrumental and classroom teachers to better language skills, terminology and general understanding.

Through this we hope to see results in the classroom as well as giving the pupils an artistic education.

There are 10 teachers teaching in the orchestra, all of them are teachers from Oslo School of Fine Arts witch also run the orchestra
