The Kantele-GO! continued effect
In March 2020 Svetlana Kobeleva, a music teacher at the Lumikello nursery school in Petrozavodsk, invented a new form of communication with children and their parents. Kantele master class was held at the kindergarten and got very positive feedback from its participants. Children and their parents learnt simple kantele performing tips and managed to play the most popular traditional tunes. Svetlana's initiative was inspired by her participation in the Kantele Master Course in Kuhmo in June 2019 where she witnessed teaching methods of her Finnish colleagues and developed her personal performing skills. Children cannot stand to continue their study once public schools begin to operate after the holidays.
