Music in the Primary Classroom
We offer a 5-day music Summer Course for teachers. The course, based on the Quartet's publication 'A Whistle and a Blast For Your Class', will be both active and relaxing. Our hands-on approach has been moulded after our 10 years experience of working with children and music education training.
Participants will receive live performances of relevant pieces and learn how to write 'raps and songs'. We will show you how to stimulate an appreciation of music through rhythmic games and constucting effective sessions in the classroom. We also include sessions on digital music, guiding you how to teach for the future.
Good fun and interactive
This course will be educational, but above all, good fun and interactive. No previous experience is necessary, so please come along and enjoy the high calibre of professional musicians, who amongst other vast musical experience have performed with the RTE Orchestras.
Lunch each day & final concert will be provided
The course allows teachers to qualify for 3 EPV days
An opportunity for your school to avail of the WhistleBlast 3-day schools programme which will involve the children themselves in a live performance with the Quartet.
