Watergate Gallery Event
“Dabbledoo Music makes music more accessible, engaging and fun for all the family, regardless of previous experience or ability. Our resources have been developed to encourage creativity and collaboration through the power of music. We use a system of animated, colour-coded notation that anyone can understand to get everybody making music together in no time!
In this workshop you will be provided with instruments and play along to Igor The Octopus (the world’s greatest drummer!), learn melody with Jazz Cat and even play an Irish Polka!
To date, we have ran workshops at a variety of events, including St Patrick’s Festival, Knockanstockan, Beatyard, Spraoi Waterford, Science Gallery, Kilkenny Arts Festival, Waterford New Music Week, The Ark, Royal Irish Academy of Music and The National Youth Orchestra of Ireland.
DabbledooMusic was set up in 2010 by Shane McKenna and Killian Redmond, both artists and educators who shared a mutual love of music. Since then, they have developed an entire music curriculum and received support from Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, enabling them to expand across the country. At present, more than 30,000 school children across Ireland are using DabbledooMusic in the classroom.”
