Here at the Mobile Music School, we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality workshops for schools. As a result, our ‘Let’s Perform’ musical theatre workshops prove to be of our most popular workshops for schools every year. Each year, we travel nationwide with this series of workshops, delivering engaging and interactive content across all age groups. Whether a student wants to be the star of the show, or a member of the chorus, there is something in these workshops for everyone. This year, we were delighted to be asked to Loreto Crumlin on two seperate dates, where tutor Lorna led the workshops. Read on to learn more!
What is ‘Let’s Perform’?
Let’s Perform workshops are essentially musical theatre workshops. These workshops introduce students into the world of musical theatre, where they combine all elements of musical theatre. Further, these musical theatre workshops combine singing, movement and drama. The workshops also culminate in a class act, where the class perform an excerpt from a well known musical. In these workshops, students learn about posture, breathing, vocal technique and projection. Students also learn how to express themselves through music and drama. Our workshops aim to boost students’ self-esteem and confidence in performing, while also developing their creativity and showmanship in a relaxed, open environment.
Workshops for Schools- Loreto College Crumlin
On the 11th and 15th of October, our music tutor Lorna led 2 80 minute workshops in Loreto College Crumlin. Lorna commenced the workshops with some fun-based ‘ice-breaker’ activities, basic vocal warm-ups and improvisation. The students partook in drama warm ups and exercises as well. Further, some of these exercises included a murder mystery, pass the beat around the room, and other games and activities.
The students were also given the opportunity to experiment with musical theatre, and went on to learn some song excerpts from popular musicals. Throughout the music sessions, the groups learned all about presence on stage, breathing and posture whilst singing, and voice projection. The workshops then finished up with an energetic end-of-session performance of the song and dance learnt. Lorna remarked on how well both groups did, and the school was delighted with her efforts, saying ‘Just to say that Lorna was excellent and the students really responded to her! I’m always so happy to have Mobile Music School come and deliver workshops as the facilitators are always so enthusiastic and knowledgeable! Looking forward to working with you again in the future.’
