Wednesday, 10 March 2021: Bring your own song. Please share your favourite German song with us! You can send me the title before the workshop. All musical styles and genres are welcome – whether you love pop, rock, folk, rap or classical music. Only those songs are excluded that support hatred, intolerance or anything illegal. Apart from this I would only suggest one rule for our workshop: Let us agree never to put down the musical taste of another participant. During our time together, we can listen to your music and speak about it. Why do you like this? What does it mean to you? Do you have any questions about the text? This  workshop is suitable for people with at least intermediate level German.

The workshops will be run by Britta Robyn, sometimes together with Rosie Land. The course fee is 20 euros per participant per workshop for a 90 minute workshop or 10 euros for a 45 minute workshop. Due to limited numbers, prior registration is necessary.
