Hyndland Music Club was set up in April 2009 to increase the opportunities to sing and learn instruments at the school. Post pandemic we are focussing on singing skills to encourage well being and confidence. There are currently around 70 children a week attending classes after school.
Classes on offer:
- Mini’s (musicianship)
In the P2 Mini Music Club, the children are taught musicianship skills using a Kodály approach to teaching. They learn about concepts – such as pulse, rhythm, notation and pitch matching – that will equip them with fundamental musical skills should they move onto learning an instrument.
Instrumental lessons are taught in a group setting. This makes the club social as well as giving children the encouragement to practice!
Children who learn an instrument also attend choir.
P1 Music Sessions
Every year the school and parent council fund extra music sessions in the spring term for all the P1 children. These sessions take place during school hours and are delivered by a Kodály trained music specialist.
Teach music and singing at school in such a way that it is not a torture but a joy for the pupil; instill a thirst for finer music in him, a thirst which will last for a lifetime.Kodály
