17KEC514 Music from Scratch through Samba Drumming & Percussion

Dates:  Tues 14th, 21st & 28th November 2017 (7pm-9pm)

Facilitator:  Kieran Gallagher 

For teachers who would like a new avenue to explore in delivering music with confidence.

No musical experience necessary. 

We will be using pulse, tempo, tones, prepared instruments, homemade instruments, the human voice and the human body.  Background will be given on the use of percussion on a local and global scale.  The group will learn concentrating/focusing techniques, ways of exploring individuality in musical expression as well as experiencing first hand ensemble music making and the many elements surrounding performance. Continually exploring the element of self-esteem through personal achievement. 

The objective of the course is to give all of the participants the ability to use music/percussion in their classrooms with the participation of all students.

All participants will develop new skills enabling them to instigate active music making in their class/school.

Kildare Education Centre has purchased 2 sets of drums.  Following completion of the course, the sets will be made available to schools on a rotational basis for a period of two weeks. To apply for short-term use of the sets, at least one teacher from your school must have completed the course.
