Sing Me a Story! 
Music & Sound in Stories for Children & Adults 

 A FEAST Learning Capsule by Rebecca Lemaire

In this interactive workshop, Rebecca will demonstrate how she uses music, sound and rhythm with different stories. 


She will subsequently guide a discussion on the “why and how” of using music with storytelling: together we will explore the different effects of sound and rhythm on different types of stories, audiences, and the storyteller, as well as the different ways in which music, sound, and song may be used to support and enhance a story. 


Participants will then go into breakout rooms, and work on a story they have brought to the workshop with their group to include a rhyme, a song, a rhythm, sound and/or music before final feedback with the whole group. 


Participants are not required to be able to sing or play an instrument to participate. 

Please bring a couple of stories to which you would like to add sound/rhythm/music, and any kind of instrument you have (a shaker – which you can make with a jar and rice/lentils-, a drum, a kalimba, a wooden spoon and pot (!), your voice), and of course, an open mind!

About Rebecca Lemaire  

Rebecca Lemaire is Belgian-British, currently based in the South of Spain. She tells stories in English, Spanish and French and has told in Spain, India, Little Tibet, the Middle East, Belgium and online to name but a few places. She has played music since she was a child and like to use sounds (flute, kalimba, voice, drum, etc.) to add depth to the stories she tells. Her passion is to look into people’s eyes, and travel with them through stories, whether in a prison, a yoga school, a Tibetan monastery in the Himalaya, a theatre, or a library. She has participated in international festivals such as the National Storytelling Network festivals (USA), The Glens Storytelling Festival (Ireland), The Scottish Storytelling festival, Munt de Mots festival (Barcelona), etc. 


In Spain, she trains primary, secondary and language teachers in storytelling techniques, gives introductory courses in storytelling skills and coaches new storytellers privately (in person and online).  


She has a BA in French and Indonesian literature and an MA in Anthropology. Even though these two subjects seem disconnected, storytelling brings them together: storytelling is the literature of the people! She studied ‘El Arte de Contar Cuentos’ with Numancia Rojas in Barcelona over the course of three years, and has done shorter workshops with different teachers from different backgrounds, including Jan Blake (UK) and Martha Escudero (Mexico). She loves learning from other professional storytellers and continues to do so when she has the opportunity. 


Storytelling is a form of communication that goes way beyond words; it is a heart-to-heart interaction, and that is why she loves it!
