Primary School Programmes
The two programs (Music Explorers for Junior – 2nd Class) and Music Club (3rd to 6th class) will be year long classes, delivered by a dedicated Musician Educator (Fully Vaxed, Garda vetted, and highly experienced) over one or two days in your school.
For the younger classes, the lessons incorporate percussion, rhythm, singing chanting and movement. For the older students, from 3rd -6th class, the lessons develop from the early years to also include group singing, creativity, and real-world workshops; and include visiting musicians, instrumentalists, and groups. These programmes would prepare them for moving on to an instrument, giving them an excellent foundation in music. The program is being designed by our experienced Musician Educators in partnership with The Ark.
The two programmes, Vox Club and Production Club, will be year-long, delivered by a dedicated Musician Educator, over one or two days in your school. The programmes are designed to work in tandem with the Music curriculum, but not replace it. Our sessions are in “Performance Music Education” – experiential music sessions – which are as much about teamwork, joy, and communication as the music itself.
For the Vox Club programme, Young people will have access to high-quality vocal tuition that challenges the students in presentational Performance Music Education – to gain the practical skills to perform with everything from a contemporary live band to a modern choir. The programs would be 1 hour per week for up to 25 weeks in the year. We would provide percussion instruments and any other resources necessary. This programme would prepare them for live settings, arrangements, and songwriting, giving them a great foundation in music. The program is being designed by our experienced Musician Educators and our Local Music Education Partners.
For the Production Club programme, Young people will develop the skills of production, songwriting, and performance; designed to gain the skills to write and perform modern contemporary music, with a view to vocal accompaniment. The programs would be 1 hour per week for up to 25 weeks in the year. We work with browser-based software, so we can work off standard school computers. We can work across genres, and adapt to the interests of the class. Again, The program is being designed by our experienced Musician Educators and our Local Music Education Partners.
Afterschool Instrument Clubs
Our Instrument Clubs are long-term small-group lessons, delivered by experienced Musician Educators in during or after school hours. The sessions will be a personal music-making experience for your child incorporating learning objectives that develop pulse, pitch, and instrument technique for the young musician within the classroom.
The goal of these weekly sessions is to introduce the children to performance-based Instrument playing in a group music-making scenario while building musical confidence. We will provide the instrument & associated worksheets for these sessions.
We currently offer Ukulele, Guitar, and Piano, but are open to all vocal accompaniment instruments!
