Department of Education approved course for primary school teachers
We have been approved by the Department of Education for one course specifically for primary school teachers . The course title is:
Tin Whistle in the Primary Classroom.
The course runs from Monday 17th - Friday 21st July from 9:30am - 2:00pm
This beginner course aimed at primary teachers equips participants with the skills, technique, knowledge, methodologies, and tunes required to begin tin-whistle lessons in the classroom. It gives participants a solid foundation in the basics of music theory and provides a step by step guide on how to plan structured and engaging tin-whistle lessons. Participants will become better equipped to enable children to explore, listen to, and respond to the sounds of music, and gain a new found confidence in their own musical competency.
Course tutor Lisa Ward hails from Co. Leitrim and is a Senior All Ireland Fiddle Champion. She has a Bachelor of Education from Mary Immaculate College and a Masters in Irish Traditional Music Performance. Lisa has eleven years experience teaching in the classroom and also provides tin-whistle tuition in her school.
Registration is on the Sunday evening and Monday morning of the Summer School.
Places are limited so teachers who wish to guarantee approval for their EPV days must register in advance below or by post before July 5th.
