We now have three musicianship classes a week for adults, based in the Kodály approach.
Through games, songs, movement and play, adult beginner musicians learn to read, write, and understand music, while developing aural and musicianship skills. These classes are aimed at meeting the needs of singers in our choirs, but are open to anyone who wishes to develop their musicianship skills. Visitors welcome.
Tuesdays, 10.00am - 10.30am
Tuesdays, 7.00pm - 7.30pm
Wednesdays, 12.30pm - 1.00pm
@ Phillipstown Hub, 39 Nursery Road, Room 6, Phillipstown (map)
