Little Musicians

Aimed at children in junior and senior infants this pre-instrumental programme introduces children to the world of music through action songs, percussion instruments, musical games and learning about music from all corners of the world. Through listening and responding to music; learning about the instruments of the orchestra, the conductor and the composer; and performing on a weekly basis, each child develops a love of music and a range of transferable musical skills. At the end of this programme children will be in a position to start instrumental tuition.

Aims:
  • introduce children to the world of music through fun based games and activities
  • develop a set of transferable musical skills in every child that can be utilised when they progress onto learning a musical instrument
  • create a life-long love and appreciation for music

Glee Club

Glee Club is a group-based singing class that integrates singing and movement and gives children a platform to develop their abilities as performers.
These classes are hugely enjoyable and popular as they appeal to a wide variety of pupils. During this programme children learn modern pop modern and many timeless classics. These songs are usually merged together into one of our popular “Mash Up” medleys. This class gives children regular opportunities to perform for one another.

Aims:
  • develop each child’s understanding of the core musical elements as their musical as their ability as singers develops
  • give children the opportunity to perform a range of new and old songs
  • develop a life-long interest in singing, performing and the arts amongst participants

Group Guitar Classes

Through a series of warm up games, technical exercises, play along backing tracks, songs and pieces of music, each student’s confidence and ability to play the guitar significantly increases. Guitar classes are aimed equally at beginners and improvers. These classes are an ideal way to start instrumental tuition. Classes begin to develop what is hoped to be a life-long love of music and performing.

Aims:
  • providing a fundamental understanding of musical concepts via the guitar
  • establishing a firm understanding of melody, harmony and rhythm and their relationship to the guitar
  • utilising the guitar as a tool for personal growth and as an opportunity for extra-curricular participation

Joanne worked with all our classes: Junior Infants – 6th class and our special classes for children with autism. All sessions were engaging and inclusive. We plan to re-book for the new school year!

Raymond SwanPrincipal, Gorey Educate Together NS

The workshop was excellent today, that was the feedback from all the teachers and pupils. She’s a great teacher. I would hope we might be able to fund another similar workshop in the next term.
