Snežana Tešić joined the “House of Good Tones” in March 2015.
In this school, her role is to teach children the basic moves of various dances as well as dance choreographies.
She mostly teaches them Latin American dances (Samba, Rumba, Salsa). Hip-hop dances have mostly prevailed up to now since children like it best but there is also cowboy dance and many more.
Snežana invites children who are interested in dancing to join the “House of Good Tones” and dance!
“When I dance, I often feel like a bird soaring in the sky since every move of my body gives me the feeling of freedom and that is actually life. So don’t worry if you cannot dance, but take off, indulge to the rhythm of the steps which take you and enjoy every move with all your heart.”
Besides the fact that performing music is very fun, playing drums is also a great therapy. We play interesting compositions on various drums together and individually every child has an opportunity to entirely master playing this instrument so he or she could play any kind of music alone or in a band with friends in future.
Everyone can learn how to play drums. Therefore, everyone whose heart beats faster when he or she thinks about drums is welcome.
Playing drums or any other instrument develops brain convolutions and increases self esteem which is very important for children of this age.
“The best recipe to achieve what we want is to set the goal for ourselves. Then, any possible obstacle is just a step closer to the goal.”
Želimirka Malović has been working in the “House of Good Tones” since it was founded. She is a music teacher by profession. She has been employed as a piano and choir teacher.
Since the role and significance of music in everyday life is quite big, the primary task of a music pedagogue is to encourage a child to listen to music, participate in it and express himself through it. Choir singing, as well as playing, improves different aspects of musical development of a child – observational, psychomotor and vocal abilities, as well as creating an esthetic attitude towards the art in general.
Except the timely encouragement of musical abilities development, spending time in our “House” opens space for a spontaneous and warm communication between children and adults and children, mutually.
Through music, we foster important social skills within children, like empathy.
I recommend these workshops to every child since through them they can express their creativity and develop collective spirit and sense for cooperation.
