Hyderabad Western Music Foundation along with Alliance Française is organising a Singing-Summer camp for Children from 22nd until 25th April every day from 10 AM -1 PM at Alliance Française. Music and children go together very well. All children love to sing! It is a wonderful way to boost brain power and build confidence in them. While most of them pick up songs from movies and music videos, not all of them are familiar with songs that were taught to generations of children. Send them along to learn some such songs from a person who has been singing all her life!

Resource person:  Shakila has taught singing in a couple of schools in Hyderabad and sings in different groups in town, such as the Deccan Voices and Jazz for Joy. She plays the guitar and will teach age appropriate songs. Join one of the two batches, according to your age. It is bound to be fun!

Batch 1:  10 – 11.30 pm for 6 – 10 years

Batch 2:  11.30 – 1pm for 11 – 16 years

Course fee: Rs. 1000 (HWMF members Rs. 900)

Registration on 22nd April at Alliance Française, Rd. No.3, Aurora Colony, Banjara Hills
