A music summer course for teachers organised by Mayo Education Centre will be held at Scoil Raifteirí, Castlebar, from July 6 to July 10 with the WhistleBlast Quartet.
The course will cover the complete music primary school curriculum in a hands on way – how to write raps and songs, how to stimulate an appreciation of music, rhythm games, an orchestra of percussion, and performance with children. There will also be a live performance every morning and a short session on music with computers.
The course allows teachers to qualify for three EPV days. The musicians in this quartet have 11 years’ experience of working with children and music education training. You can enrol now by contacting Mayo Education Centre at 094 902 0700; www.whistleblastquartet.com; www.MayoEducationCentre.ie
