Santander Orchestra music workshops for children aged 5 to 12, during which their predispositions for music were tested. Qualified experts checked the competences required when applying to musical schools, such as recognizing major and minor keys, remembering melodies, identifying the number of sounds played one after another and a number of sounds played at the same time.
For many participants of the Santander Orchestra workshops, it was the first opportunity ever to take such a close look at keyboard instruments. The participation in the event served also as a practice before the stressful situation of entry exams to a music schools. While waiting for the test, children took part in rhythm classes and parents could listen to a lecture on the benefits of musical education delivered by outstanding experts.
