Here at the Mobile Music School, we pride ourselves on delivering quality music education in primary schools nationwide. Despite the uncertainty of current times, we managed to have an extremely successful 2020/21, and are even carrying over this success into the summer months! We are delighted to deliver music in primary schools workshops for kids camps. Today, our fantastic tutor Karen was down in Ballymun, to deliver Let’s Drum workshops in Holy Spirit Boys National School, as part of their summer camp. Read on to learn more!
Music in Primary Schools- Summer Camps
We can offer either our “Let’s Explore” music making workshop or our “Let Drum” drumming workshop, as part of our kids camp programmes. One of our tutors can come to a kids camp and work with up to 4 groups of children. On the day each group will participate in an interactive and fun based workshop facilitated by one of our experienced tutors. We can facilitate up to 24 pupils in a session. Further, depending on the number of groups or budget we can offer a 45 minute or 60 minute session. Once it’s dry we can also deliver the workshop outdoors. However, if it rains on the day our tutors are happy to deliver the workshop indoors. Further, the tutor will comply with all Covid related precautions.
Holy Spirit BNS Camp- Let’s Drum
MMS tutor Karen led the Let’s Drum workshops in Holy Spirit Boys Nation School’s summer camp this morning. Working with three separate groups, Karen delivered each workshop with her usual enthusiasm and energy! Each of the students showed great enthusiasm and managed to cover a wide range of material, including ear training and instrument technique. The students used a range of different percussion instruments from all around the world, and Karen explained the history of each instrument to the boys. Some other basic music notation covered in the workshops included minims, crotchets, quavers and semi-quavers and their associated rests. Karen and the students had a ball exploring the role of the composer and experimenting with how to create rhythms. The students really enjoyed learning these rhythm patterns, which they performed for the entire class group.
