Music education in schools is known to be one of the best foundations for setting students up for all aspects of their future learning. It is for this reason that the Mobile Music School’s music workshop facilitators are so passionate about delivering educational workshops for schools. Our Music in the Classroom programmes teach the highest quality of music education but in a fun-filled, interactive way that engages students in the music-making process.

Our 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 educational workshops for schools that are completely child-centred and are focused around activity-based learning. 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.


Violin in the Classroom

This Music in the Classroom programme enables schools to offer students a weekly violin lesson overseen by a qualified violin teacher.

Pupils are immediately immersed into the music-making process and work in a group environment that radically develops their musical awareness, self-esteem and confidence as musicians and creative thinkers.

During classes students learn how to read notation, perform as part of an ensemble and perform different genres of music from all corners of the world.

Violin in the Classroom gives students a sense of achievement by developing their technical and musical abilities as violinists. This programme also enables schools to form a school orchestra…. if they wish!

Recorder in the Classroom

Learning the recorder is a simple and affordable way for schools to introduce students to the world of music and to develop a successful music programme with tangible results.

Recorder in the Classroom enables schools to offer weekly recorder classes taken by a specialist tutor. Through the use of enjoyable music and backing tracks, classes aim to develop the technical and musical abilities of pupils on the recorder, whilst allowing their musical awareness, confidence and self-esteem to develop.

During these educational workshops for schools, students learn how to read music notation, play as part of a group and perform at school concerts and events.

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. Through activity-based learning, students are taught music education in a way that is fun and enjoyable for them.

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 Music in the Classroom programmes, these classes intertwine the three core elements of the primary school music curriculum.
