DYNAMICS – Register your school’s interest by Friday 7th December by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to further generous funding from Louth Leader, the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of a second new and innovative music education programme targeted at Primary Schools in Louth – ‘Dynamics’.
The ‘Dynamics’project, managed and monitored by CBOI will be taught in two Primary Schools, ideally DEIS schools, or schools in rural isolated regions with little access to the Arts or Music Education. The programme is FREE for selected schools. Under the scheme, instrumental tuition will be given in Violin; children will be provided with a Violin on loan; children will have daily group violin lessons during term time and will be taught by highly qualified and experienced tutors. The programme is ideally suited to small class groups aged 6 – 7years.
Schools are now invited to register their interest in the ‘Dynamics’programme. Schools registering their interest should ensure that they have the full support of the school Principal, Staff and Board of Management. They should also ensure that they have a suitable space where tuition can take place and adequate storage space for the instruments.
The ‘Dynamics’programme is also modelled on the Venezuelan system of music education which is regarded as the best in the world.Through ‘Dynamics’the CBOI aims to develop a thriving classical music education system for children in Louth. Ensemble or group learning is proven to be much more successful than individual tuition on which the majority of instrument teaching in Ireland is based. Typically, children receive one individual lesson per week and are expected to ‘practice’ themselves every other day. In the majority of cases this does not happen, children do not progress at their instrument, and many give up due to frustration at the slow pace of improvement or lack of interest.
