Music of Origins”: an introduction to prehistoric music

Do you love music? Did you know that this passion for rhythm and melodious sounds dates back to ancient times? Our ancestors also loved music, and Pascal Villesuzanne, guide/lecturer and passionate musician/teacher, is offering workshops to help you learn about prehistoric music!

Musique des origines

A workshop for everyone

You don’t need to be a Conservatoire graduate to take part in this introductory workshop to prehistoric music. Pascal will begin by explaining how music came into being. How did we gradually get to grips with rhythm? What do we tap to make sound? And how? He’ll show you and, above all, make you listen.

After discovering the range of musical instruments from prehistoric times, you too can try your hand at making sounds! As melodious as possible, but let’s not forget that we’re here to have fun! The “Music of Origins” workshop is open to everyone, young and old. In the unique and magical setting of the rock shelters at La Roque Saint-Christophe, you’ll find yourself in the perfect environment to get your groove on and, after just a few minutes’ rehearsal, produce a concerto that’s sure to surprise many a listener!
