4th Class Recorder Performance - June 2018

Our Recorder Concert (by Sarah Keenan)

On the 15th of June we performed on our recorders for our parents. We had worked hard all year with Gavin and we sounded really good at the concert. Most of our parents were there and they thought we were really good, they were very proud. We played two songs – Yoda’s Theme and Ode to Joy. Our class played the melody for Ode to Joy and Ms.Griffin’s class played the harmony. Yoda’s Theme was tricky for us to learn as there were three parts!! Unfortunately we only learn recorder in 3rd & 4th Class but luckily there is brass to look forward to next year.

School Choir

Our award winning school choir rehearse every Monday after school with Mrs Brolly.  Ms. Reidy, Mrs. Ryan, Mrs. O’Sullivan, Ms. Kenny, Mrs. Bowe and Ms. Whitney also work with the choir and assist Mrs. Brolly throughout the year. They are an enthusiastic bunch and already sound like pros. 

Our New Brass Band
Our Brass Development Programme is proving to be a great success. It runs each Wednesday from 3-4pm. Some pupils chose to learn the trumpet while others are learning the trombone. The cost of purchase of these instruments is covered by Music Generation Carlow and we are extremely grateful for their input into the promotion of music in our school. Gavin Barr, the teacher designated to us by Music Generation, is an inspirational teacher who ensures that the lessons are  well-structured  and progressive  but fun at the same time.  The advancement the pupils have made to date is quite incredible.
