Description



The Crossmolina Festival will run a one-day session for infants through age 8 years on Saturday, July 22, 2017.

An admission fee of €5 (to cover the cost of booklets) per child is payable through Eventbrite and must be booked in advance.

These sessions will offer developmentally appropriate activities for you and your child to learn, and to help prepare children to become musical.

The American music education researcher, pedagogue and author, Dr. John Feierabend (b. 1952) believes children can become musical in three ways:

  1. Tuneful – to have tunes in their heads and learn to coordinate their voices to sing those tunes.
  2. Beatful – to feel the pulse of music and how that pulse is grouped in either 2s or 3s.
  3. Artful – to be moved by music in the many ways music can elicit a feelingful response.

Here are the four age categories:

  1. Infants (3 months to 1.5 years) accompanied by a parent/caregiver
  2. Toddlers (1.5 years to 2.5 years) accompanied by a parent/caregiver
  3. Preschool (2.5 years to 5 years) accompanied by a parent/caregiver
  4. Primary (6 to 8 years) accompanied by a parent/caregiver - optional
