ABBA The Museum Holiday Workshops

School autumn holiday at ABBA The Museum next week! No admission fee.

ABBA The Museum invites youth to write and perform their own songs! We will hold free student workshops during the autumn school holiday to inspire children to experiment with and create music in the spirit of the iconic Swedish pop group, ABBA.

The workshops will be led by Swedish TV personalities Rijal and Saleh Mbamba, two brothers who are also the driving forces behind a Helsingborg-based creative collective called S.T.I.C.S. Rijal is a well-known face to Swedish children due to his role as a TV presenter on Swedish Television’s Summer Break show.

“The passion of S.T.I.C.S. to encourage children to combine poetry and music in new creative ways fits perfectly with the spirit of our museum,” says Mattias Hansson, Director of ABBA the Museum. “We are very excited to be hosting these creative workshops and believe that great and surprising things can happen.”

Autumn school holiday 
Rhythm is everywhere
The first workshop, which is designed for children between the ages of 7-10 years, will explore how to create your own songs and express them in a personal way. The focus of this workshop is on teaching children how to combine words and rhythms.

Workshop 1: Find your own rhythm!
Age group: Children ages 7 to 10 years
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 12 noon
Dates: Wednesday, Oct. 30th – Friday, November 1st
Admission: Free with ticket
Rhythm is everywhere: in nature, in music and in yourself. As part of Workshop 1, students will listen to rhythmic parts of ABBA's musical repertoire in order to develop their own musical ear and to feel music in a completely new way.

Learning the art of songwriting
The second workshop is designed to provide children aged 11 to 15 with a basic understanding of how to write and perform songs. Not always as easy as it looks, songwriting can be done in many different ways. Where do you start? How should the song end? How do you create the right music for the refrain? How do you perform a song while standing in front of an audience?

Workshop 2: The art of writing and performing
Age group: Children ages 11 to 15 years
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Dates: Wednesday, Oct. 30th – Friday, November 1st
Admission: Free with ticket
