Teacher Testimonials, Summer 2016
Ita Monaghan, Raheen, Co Limerick
"Thank you for a most informative course and for providing such a rich supply of material and resources. It was one of the most impressive online courses I have done.
I'm hoping to do a lot of work in the area of music education this year."
Linda Marshall, Naas, Co Kildare
"Great course. Rebecca really knows her stuff. I play music myself and have done a good few courses over the years in Ireland and the UK, but this one was definitely the best."
Sandra de Lacy, Castlebar, Co Mayo
"This course, in a refreshing way, has given the Music in the Primary School a breath of life. It is focused on the main aspects of the music curriculum- listening and responding, performing, song singing, composition, music literacy and graphic representation etc, but it does so in a modern way. Through the use of ICT resources from around the world and virtual videos it brings the broader world of music alive in an Irish Classroom."
Discussion in the online forum has included:
- Music and Mindfulness
- Linking Music with PE, Art, Creative Writing,History and other subject areas.
- Mixing Genres of Music. Classical Salsa fusion - Crazy Stuff!!
- Playing Percussion - Incorporating it into a Science lesson.
- ICT Resources - YouTube, Spotify, Specific Apps, IWB Resources
I am glad to announce the course will return for summer 2017!
