Connect hand, eye, and ear
By Vidas Pinkevicius
The above drawing was made by a 7-year-old Andrius after I gave him and his dad a private tour of the organ at Vilnius University St. John's church.
When he presented me his vision of the largest pipe organ in Lithuania, I started thinking that the organ demonstration experience could be much more profound for kids if we ask them to draw what they saw afterwards.
Notice it's not the usual boy-drawing - airplanes, soldiers, machine guns or cars. It's a pipe organ.
So next time you play an organ demonstration for a group of kids, their teachers and parents you found in some school of your area, make sure you give them some homework, like drawing a pipe organ that they saw or depicting a feeling of music that they heard.
Connect their hand, eye, and ear into complete experience that they will never forget.
