Leanaigí (Follow)

Leanaigí is a performance music education programme for pre-school and primary school children delivered by suitably experienced Musician Educators.

A Musician Educator who specialises in whole class introductory and group early years tuition spends 30 minutes with each class/group during the school day on a weekly basis or can facilitate a 45 minute session for parent and toddlers in locations such as Libraries and Community Centers. Leanaigí 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, or whole-class weekly sessions on a particular instrument(s). 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 – get in touch to bring Leanaigí to your school, library or community!

Bailigí (Gather)

Bailigí means to “gather” – the gathering of children and young people into music-making groups can take place in schools (after school hours), in youth clubs and in community settings. Expert Musician Educators facilitate the group process in helping to choose appropriate material and offering technical guidance as to how to successfully play as a group. Making music in a group is a great way to make friends and develop social skills and it is also one of the simplest ways to make yourself feel good!

From an educational point of view, making music enhances listening, comprehension, multi-tasking, rhythm and harmony skills – get in touch to bring Bailigí to your youth service or community setting!
