FES department works with children and their families through the development and achievements of programmes and services to support integration and social inclusion and bridging the gap between formal and non-formal education. Mandy Mifsud, from the FES, in collaboration with our residing vocal tutor Rosabelle Bianchi, conducted the workshop, where the youths present had an interesting discussion on music as an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. The workshop helped the students to interact and express themselves making the utmost in trying to make use of music expression even through singing. It helped them realize how much they are able to appreciate music and how rewarding and educative can be in learning to play an instrument and take music studies seriously.
