Seachtain na Gaeilge 2018 was another great success this year for the Mobile Music School! Our team of tutors had a ball delivering music workshops as Gaeilge to both Primary and Secondary Schools across Ireland. Our busiest time of year, Seachtain na Gaeilge is a great opportunity for us to fuse our passion for music with our passion for Gaeilge.
Seachtain na Gaeilge Workshops
One of our most popular music workshops for schools during Seachtain na Gaeilge is Let’s Drum. Through games, activities and performing, our drumming workshops allow primary school students to explore the percussion family, develop their understanding of rhythm and improve their rhythmical ability, whilst performing as part of a drumming ensemble.
These sessions incorporate station learning and ensure that each child gets an opportunity to play four instruments. Each workshop culminates in a live end-of-workshop performance that combines the different rhythms and activities covered during the sessions.
As well as drumming, we also delivered a range of Let’s Sing workshops and Learn & Explore workshops as Gaeilge.
