Building confidence and encouraging creativity with the body and voice,
through puppets and small props.

A workshop tutorial with Tamara O’Brien

Nothing captures a child’s attention and imagination quite like a puppet.

This workshop will give you loads of tips, tricks, songs and games to use with puppets and small props. Build confidence in your students and encourage their creativity with body and voice.

Puppets and props are excellent tools for the music room. They can be used to introduce many aspects of music making to young children, such as:
  • exploring imitation and improvisation in movement
  • exploring pitch, timbre and improvisation with the voice
  • Puppets and props also offer instant opportunities for inclusion
Most of all, they are fun and engaging to work with and will excite all children in your class.

Join Tamara O'Brien, author of the internationally acclaimed We're Orff! program (and international music education presenter) on a close encounter of the puppet kind.
