This programme is made up of 3 workshops as follows:
Workshop one: This workshop explores a range of musical concepts (for instance pitch; rhythm; speed, silence; duration; dynamics; pulse; phrasing) and considers how these can be creatively introduced to children through a combination of adult and child-led playful experiences while connecting with the Aistear curriculum
Workshop two: This workshop introduces you to a wide range of musical instruments and other resources appropriate for Early Years music activities and various approaches to how these can be effectively incorporated throughout a music workshop. It also looks at the music workshop structure, and effective ways of delivering an experience in music and song
Workshop three: This workshop focuses on kinesthetic sense and multi-sensory learning, i.e., feeling music with your whole body. It draws from the teaching of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, a swiss music educator, who believed that experiencing the elements of music with the whole body led to a deeper understanding of those musical elements.
Certificate of Attendance (issued once all 3 workshops are complete).
