My Bachelor thesis

So here a little more about my BA thesis.
I actually had 2 years to work on it, because I changed from „kindergarden“ to „primary school“ after three semesters.

I wanted to do something creative and I’ve always liked children’s books and well you all know about my passion for music.
I decided to combine the two and created a story with a class first. They were in 2nd grade at the time, this was 2 years ago. I gave the kids a theme: Pirates and we made different tasks with that. I showed them pictures of pirates, boats etc. and collected the kid’s thoughts, they created a theatre in groups in the end. With all of that I started writing the text (in German of course) and included all their ideas. Then I had to write the theoretical part about children’s books and also about how to put it into music. I did the music with the same kids. I wrote two pirates songs and did other different things including music. The two pirate crews got a special melody, we put a storm and a sunrise into music etc.
When I had the story I wanted to find someone to draw the pictures. I didn’t want the children to do that as well, because they had so much to do already and it would have been difficult, because they all have different styles. A woman from my theatre group is really talented and we sat together discussing everything. I so happy I found her, the pictures are brilliant.

Now I have to finish up the book and edit and print the thesis. In the end there will be the written thesis, the childeren’s book and a CD added with the music.
