Easter Blessings

Warmest good wishes

 for this Easter.

I thought I'd take this opportunity (a two-week break) to share news about all that is coming up at the music school for you, our cherished members.  And to wish you all a happy, healthy Easter Break.

Workshops Series Continues.

After a very successful Uke Can Do It workshop, I am very happy to announce that our April workshop will be offered on Saturday the 30th at 2:00pm.  It is run by Eoin Fallon and he will instruct attendees on How to Write a Song as follows:

1. Understand the Theory behind writing a song.
2. The importance of a time signature.
3. Understanding keys and chords.
4. Melody writing
5. Chord progressions / writing a base line.
6. Harmony and counterpoint.
By the end of this class every participant will be able to write a song with ease.

A Summer BBQ to raise funds for one lucky family!

I am putting out a request to you, our students, to nominate a family with a disabled child who would benefit from use of a mobility trike.  If you know of any child in your family or circle of friends, please contact Therese via email: info@wicklowmusicdrama.ie  The first message received and confirmed will be the lucky recipient.

The event will be held on July 24th in the East Glendalough School field, and I would be thrilled and extrememly grateful if a parent or parents would join me in organising this event.  We will get the support of Variety, the Childrens' Charity.  You can see what amazing work they are doing on their Irish website here:

 Don't forget School concerts are coming up NEXT month, on the weekend of May 20th.  

I'd like to wish our Leaving Cert. students the very best for their practicals coming up this next week.

Classes resume week of April 25th!

Have fun and don't forget at least 5 out of 7 days for practise - always!
