Description

Timbalooloo strives to fundamentally reimagine the way music is taught and how music can be conceived by children during their early formative years. The center of our work is the Timbalooloo Method, which was developed by internationally renowned musician Oran Etkin. In the Timbalooloo Method, instruments come to life and speak through their music so that children learn to express themselves not by having to execute the correct notes, but rather by making their instruments come alive and actually speak the language of music, adding character, humor and emotion to the music. This notion of instruments speaking to each other harkens back to Etkin’s experiences as a young boy falling in love with the music of Louis Armstrong – a musician who certainly was a master at making his trumpet come alive and express things that words cannot express.

Through fun games, stories, songs and movements, the children engage with rich musical and cultural heritage – from Tito Puente to Mozart, Willie Nelson to Herbie Hancock.
