Do you enjoy singing in English?

How about letting shadow puppets dance to your songs?


With Mark you can find out just how funny English songs can sound by adding your own verses and ideas. Suddenly it is not only Old MacDonald riding his tractor but also his animals joining in with the craziest ideas...


While rehearsing your English song, Mark shows you how to build shadow puppets, get them moving on screen and together you’ll discover how the shadows can bring your hilarious song to life. You’ll prepare and rehearse your musical skit on three afternoons to polish it up for your performance. For an audience we’ll invite your fellow students, teachers and parents and all those who know that learning English is fun!


Songs include:


  • This old man
  • Tie me kangaroo down sport
  • Old MacDonald had a farm
  • Hickory Dickory Doc
  • Twelve days of Christmas
  • Where, oh where has my little dog gone

The workshop is guided by Mark Tietjens, a native speaker from New Zealand.
