Dalkey School Project Session 6 with Eamon Sweeney, musician: 16 May 2014 – Small Group Work: forming a band…. creating a composition

Today’s session has a number of distinct sections:

(i) the bands work with me in the hall in 15 min rehearsal slots – musical roles are assigned; songs are rethought; themes explored; artistic ownership encouraged…it’s hard work to decide on a song and an arrangement.
(ii) when not engaged in rehearsals in the hall each group work together in the classroom developing their ideas around presentation of the upcoming show

(iii) the second hour of the session was spent viewing music videos and discussing the marriage of song and image and then revisiting our previous work developing  the class’s group composition.
