Their content is tailored to the target group and their needs. It places great emphasis on the active involvement of participants and the subsequent use of the new skills in daily life.

Project summary:

The starting point for the project Art Performed by Pensioners III is the positive experience in the implementation of cultural projects, which have taken place several times in the past. Taking into account the feedback received from participants in courses implemented in previous years, our aim is to continue to implement courses designed to maximise the specificities of education for senior citizens. The content of the project is aimed at strengthening existing and acquiring new theoretical knowledge, as well as acquiring new and improving existing practical skills such as playing a musical instrument, improving breathing coordination, maintaining lung capacity, strengthening the diaphragm, acquiring correct singing habits important for the interpretation of single and multi-vocal songs, developing a sense of cooperation and mutual creation with other singers, etc. The instrumental and vocal part of the course includes theoretical lectures as well as practical exercises. Their content is tailored to the target group and their needs. The courses will be concluded by presenting the activities of the participants, which for them is a significant event. The courses are an integral part of education at the University of the Third Age, which places great emphasis on the active involvement of participants, as well as on the subsequent use of the new skills in daily life.
