Music Resources

Our musicians, Ciara & Sorcha from Music Generation have kindly sent on some resources for the children to enjoy at home.

Junior & Senior Infants

Lán Le Ceol – Kilcoona N.S    

Instructions

There is a rhyme and a song to learn each week from memory.

  • With each week there is an audio file singing or saying each song/rhyme and a second recording with the beat accompanying the song or rhyme.
  • Play along with the beat when you know the song/rhyme on a percussion instrument at home or even try playing the beat with some kitchen utensils like pots, pans or spoons. If you would like, you could also make some instruments like shakers from empty bottles and some dry rice or pasta.
  • You can perform the song and rhyme over the weekend for your family or even get a collection of your favourite teddy bears or toys and let them be the audience. You can also make a video and send it to someone special (this will really cheer someone up to get a little concert sent to them).

The second part of your work is to listen to a YouTube link of an instrument and colour in the picture and read the facts about this instrument below the image.
