Here at the Mobile Music School, we deliver high quality workshops for schools nationwide. Further, these workshops for schools keep us extremely busy throughout the year. Seachtain na Gaeilge is our busiest time of the year each year, and we pride ourselves on incorporating Irish Language, music and culture into our workshops, and delivering these workshops for schools nationwide. This year, we developed our brand new ‘Trad Sessions’ workshops for schools for Seachtain na Gaeilge. These workshops proved to be really successful this year- read on to learn more about them!
Workshops for Schools- Our ‘Trad Sessions’ Workshops
Our ‘Trad Sessions’ workshops are a development of the Irish Trad music workshops we did last year! This year, the focus for these workshops was on a range of different Irish instruments, with two musicians bringing in a variety of different traditional Irish instruments. During these sessions, our musicians played for the children across a range of traditional Irish instruments.These instruments included the guitar, banjo, whistles, flute, concertina and more! The repertoire included a mix of songs and pieces of music that introduced the children to Irish traditional music. These renditions also gave the children the opportunity to clap, sing and move along. Further, as part of the content the children from 1st class up learnt the song Oró Sé Do Bheatha Baile.
What did the schools think?
These sessions proved to be a great success, and it was fantastic to see the children in each school so engaged in traditional Irish Music! Check out the testimonial below, for an example of the great feedback we received from our Irish Trad Sessions!
“I just wanted to pass my thanks on to Eoin and Ian and the Mobile Music School. They were absolutely fantastic! The kids loved it and were really engaged. Thanks again!”- Assumption Junior National School.
With the success of our Trad Sessions this year, we’ll definitely be back next year for our Seachtain na Gaeilge workshops for schools!
