Intermediate Course – €300
The Intermediate course is for the older more advanced primary school age children (9 -12/13 ) who have been learning for a few years and have reasonable to good fluency in reading music.
What grade they have achieved is not as important as having the concentration for the slightly longer day and the reading skills to be able to learn new pieces of music in group situations over the course of the week.
As well as the same activities as the juniors, (listed above including choir) they will have an additional chamber music class and an orchestra session.
Chamber groups will be assigned during the first couple of days and will be based on matching up children of similar age and ability to learn pieces of a suitable standard for them. The aim is for it to be fun and give them an insight into playing as part of a group and to prepare a piece for performance at the end of the course.
Venue: Kylemore Abbey,
Sunday introductory session from 2pm – 4:15pm
Monday – Friday 9:30 – 1:45 which will include a 15 minute break during the morning session and a half hour lunch break at 12pm.
The children will need to bring snacks and drinks with them as they will not be allowed to leave the premises at breaks unless their parent picks them up and brings them back.
On Friday there will be a short lunchtime concert after the last session involving the juniors and Intermediate’s drama, and musical items.
Then at 6:30pm (exact time tbc) we will have the final concert in which the chamber groups, jazz, trad and orchestra items from the Senior and adults courses will play. The Intermediates will be participating in this concert also as part of certain orchestral items.
Parents and friends are most welcome to attend this concert.
