Classroom Music projects run over the course of the school year and consist of between 24 and 34 weeks of tuition. We offer a variety of music workshops and lessons to primary schools, ranging from curriculum based classes to instrument projects. Please see the various options outlined below.
We also offer our range of classroom music programmes as Gaeilge. To visit the Gaeilge version of our website, please click here.
Set on the three core strands of the primary school music curriculum these classes focus on listening and responding, performing, and composing. Encompassing many elements from our short music programmes – ‘Let’s Drum’, ‘Let’s Sing’ and ‘Learn & Explore’ ensures that the world of music is explored in a fun, calm and structured manner. It is a great way for children to learn about a variety of music disciplines that they may never have been exposed to previously.
Over the past number of years we have successfully delivered this programme in many schools across Ireland. Our tried, tested and regularly updated music schemes and lesson plans have been enjoyed by in excess of 4,000 pupils already! We’re sure these classes will be a big hit in your school and will help students develop a big interest in making music.
These classes are beneficial to classroom teachers too as many teachers have commented on how the classes have given them new ideas for their own lessons, which have fostered a renewed sense of confidence teaching music. In addition, the Mobile Music School provides complementary monthly lesson plans to teachers at participating schools to help them with their learning programme.

Percussion in the Classroom
Percussion in the Classroom is a BIG HIT in schools and sees each class receiving a weekly interactive 30-minute class. Students are taught how to read music notation, play in time, and develop their rhythmical, musical and technical knowledge whilst playing a variety of percussion instruments.
As drums excite every child, our percussion project has proven popular with girls and boys alike. Each student is given the opportunity to perform on their chosen instrument during percussion ensemble performances.
These classes teach children how to read music notation, play in time and play in parts, whereby the class is divided up and each group has its own music to play.
Like all our programmes, these classes intertwine the three core elements of the primary school music curriculum.
