Music Courses for Teachers/SNA’s in Sligo Education Centre in partnership with Music Generation Sligo

Would you like to dust off your clefs and get back to basics on the recorder or keyboard? Try your hand at percussion? Broaden your repertoire of songs? Brush up on your theory? Sligo Education Centre invites primary school teachers/SNA’s to consider a range of music courses for the coming term with Music Generation Sligo tutors.


Teachers are beginning to value the importance of their own wellbeing as they promote wellbeing in the classroom.  Due to demand we are providing a relating and informative session for teachers and staff.  These are ideal for all who participated in Mindfulness Matters summer/autumn courses with Ann and Derval.  It is the perfect opportunity to take "time out" and create a sense of balance and ease in mind a body and to reconnect with simple techniques to keep up the habit and the practice.  If you need to refresh and renew book early!
