A storyteller is always in training!
Well...this one is.
The year began with a singing workshop with Richard Gill from the Victorian State Opera. But so much of storytelling is about rhythm.
This year Port Fairy offered a huge range of workshops but I couldn't go past Peter Vadiveloo's offering: Percussion Experience.
Peter is a natural born teacher. Ably assisted by his daughters Ruby and Bella, Peter's workshop included vocal, body and instrumental percussion.
After three sessions Peter had us up on Stage 2 performing before an appreciative audience.
The Festival finished on Monday and here it is
Wednesday and I've just returned from a jobtelling stories to 4 year olds where already I used
some of my new knowledge gained from the workshop.
So much to learn and so little time!
