Ballinteer Educate Together Session 2 with Eamon Sweeney, musician: 2 February 2015 – Along the path

Junior Infants

Playing music in a circle can help develop useful musical skills – waiting your turn; circularity of rhythms, keeping a steady beat, eye contact, awareness of each other. Today we continued our skill development with more games and listened to all the instruments in ‘Tubby the Tuba’s’ Orchestra – on a classic recording with the voice of the wonderful Danny Kaye.
