Learning to Incorporate Music into Your Storytelling: This is an interactive workshop that describes how storytellers of any level can incorporate music into their storytelling. Songs can tell a story and instrumental music can be used to create a mood, establish a rhythm or to imply sound effects. If you can plan an instrument and you want some ideas about how to use music in your storytelling, this workshop is for you.
