The Haven String Quartet performs in-school assembly programs to bring the excitement of live performance to school audiences. All the quartet’s programs combine performance, demonstration and participation elements. Music Haven’s teaching artists weave interactive learning opportunities and educational substance into 45-minute performances.
Examples of educational residency workshops include:
1)“The Art of Musical Conversation”
2)“Giraffes Can’t Dance and Other Stories”
3)“A Trip Around the World with the HSQ”
4)“Finding Your Voice”
Each workshop introduces the string instrument family and explores concepts of teamwork, communication, and problem-solving methods. Workshops often also include illustrations of non-verbal communication within the quartet and explorations of emotions, textures, and imagery inspired by music. Through a combination of interactive activities, story-telling, and music, the HSQ connects musical ideas with academic, social, and cultural learning concepts.
