At Scoil Úna Naofa*, pupils have weekly violin class where they learn to play violin and how to read music. Classes begin with musical games aimed at understanding music and care for posture and the instrument. Classes are given by our violin project staff, with class teacher present. At age 9 and 10 pupils are offer the opportunity to learn a second string instrument and be part of the St Agnes' junior Strings Orchestra.
*St Agnes' Primary and Scoil Colm amalgamated in 2016 to become Scoil Úna Naofa.
Children develop skills that help not only playing music, but help in self confidence, concentration, teamwork and focus. Above all children are enabled to enjoy their classes while growing personally, socially and musically. As they develop and grow they make new friends through music across the city, across the country, across generations.
The professional string tutors give the very best of instruction, and help the children with music and co-ordination skills, which build the basis of playing the instrument very well.
