music for schools

Posted by & filed under Music Lessons.

Here at the Mobile Music School, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality music for schools through short programmes, workshops and after school programmes. In all of our music for schools programmes, students are immersed in a highly energetic, fun-filled music-making session.

We were delighted to be invited back to St. Peter’s National School in Phibsborough yet again, for another Learn and Explore short programme. We delivered learn and explore programmes to the pupils last year, which proved to be very popular.  We began this term on Wednesday 8th January 2020, and the classes have gotten off to a great start. Our music tutor Clare is facilitating these workshops, and is delighted with the enthusiasm and talent of the students already!

 

What do the lessons involve?

 

When it comes to music for schools, the learn and explore programmes deliver a vast array of musical skills. These interactive, fun and activity-based classes aim to enhance each child’s musical awareness and aim to give each child a firm musical foundation.

During classes, students discover that music tells a story. With the help of our professional tutors, they explore the role of the conductor, investigate the importance of percussion, and learn about dynamics, tempo, mood, the beat and rhythm. Students learn and perform songs, compose music using set sounds and play along to music.

This short music programme culminates in a classroom performance of the songs and percussion music learned during the programme.  Our tutors encourage the children to move to music, express themselves through movement and internalize musical concepts. Children also gain the ability to read music notation, understand the concepts of rhythm, pulse, pitch tone and timbre.

 

We are really excited to be back in St. Peters, and hope all the children enjoy their lessons!
