Here at the Mobile Music School, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality music workshops for schools. This March, we were delighted to take on a four week bodhrán programme in Moneenroe NS! Read on to learn more.
Workshops for Schools- Our Bodhrán Workshops and what they consist of
We wanted to include this iconic Irish instrument in our workshops. During these bodhrán workshops for schools, each group will receive a weekly, hands on percussion session. Each student will have their own bodhrán. These sessions are full of fun and energetic activities. These activities ensure that every student is engaged and interested throughout. Further, these fun, energetic activities always ensure a joyful atmosphere in our bodhrán workshops for schools. Our music tutors always ensure that each music session is interactive and engaging. Each tutor creates an environment that is relaxing and open for every student to express themselves.
Each group will cover a wide range of material, including extensive ear training and instrument technique. Some other basic music notation will be covered, including minims, crotchets, quavers and semi-quavers and their associated rests. The students will also cover the role of the composer and experiment with creating different rhythms. Following this, the students will perform as an ensemble.
Our Workshops in Moneenroe NS
Music tutor Niall has been delivering a four week bodhrán programme in Moneenroe this March.Each week, Niall delivered 5×45 minute classes in the school, with the intention of developing each students skill level each week. During each workshop, students have been developing the ability to read music notation, create rhythms and patterns of their own; and likewise, take on brand new challenges as a group. Further, they have managed to cover a wide range of material, including extensive ear training and instrument technique. Some other basic music notation includes minims, crotchets, quavers and semi-quavers and their associated rests. Each student has their own bodhrán, and learned brand new techniques with Niall. Niall has really enjoyed working with the groups each week!
