Pre-Twinkle classes, provided to Junior and Senior Infant classes, provide an introduction to basic music skills for young children in a stimulating and fun atmosphere.  This course is a pre-instrumental one which includes an introduction to music through singing, rhythm training and listening to music.  It is based on the “Kodaly Method” of pre-instrumental training, which is based on teaching, learning and understanding music through the experience of singing.  Pupils will have the opportunity to learn a repertoire of songs suitable for developing pitch, rhythm training through the use of percussion instruments and will become familiar with a varied range of instrumental works.  The classes are 30 minutes in duration.
