Programme Description  

Leanaigí is a child-centred performance music education approach which engages children in active music-making through singing activities and games, rhythm, solfége and improvisation. The programme can take the form of “pre-instrumental” sessions (suited to junior classes) where singing, movement and games are the mainstay.


It can also take the form of whole-class weekly sessions on a particular instrument(s) according to the availability of appropriate instrumental practitioners and the suitability of instruments for the large-group context. Once established, the programmes can give rise to ensembles, choir/singing groups and even school orchestras- anything is possible!


Leanaigí is not intended to replace or interfere with primary school music curriculum.
