We have introduced Dabbledoo to the children. Dabbledoo is  a new method of teaching music in the classroom, specifically designed for Irish Primary Schools. The system has been designed to make music more accessible, fun and creative for teachers and their students while comprehensively covering all areas of the Primary Music Curriculum. No musical experience is required and all participation will be in context of group performance using simple classroom instruments. All parents have access to this course for free. If any parents would like to sign-up, they can do so through this link. Here you will find lots of fun musical activities to keep the children entertained.
