The school workshops offered by the Centre des musiciens du monde are an invitation to experience a traditional musical culture under the guidance of a specialized mediator from that culture.
Each workshop strengthens children’s musical, social, and cognitive skills in a friendly environment designed to develop listening skills, tolerance, and respect for others.
The workshops include a moment of listening and interaction with the mediator, followed by a group musical practice (musical instruments, singing, dancing, etc.)
Here are the themes currently available at the Centre des musiciens du monde:
- Discovering the balafon (Mali and Guinea-Conakry)
- Rhythms and dances of West Africa (Senegal)
- Creole worlds (Reunion Island, Haiti …)
- Music, dance, and singing in Cameroon and among the Pygmies
- The enchanting bird, musical tale (Iran)
- Jarocho Sound: an experience at the heart of Mexican traditions

- The rhythms of the carnival of Rio (Brazil)
- Dances of Quebec: discover the social networks of yesteryear
