Donegal Summer School of Music July

New classes for 2019

Donegal Pops - BOOK NOW

A class for all ages, Donegal Pops is made up of a colourful blend of strings, wind, brass and a rhythm section.

Under the expert guidance of Niamh Crowley students will have a chance to play popular songs as well as themes from stage and screen from Pharrell Williams to Katy Perry and James Bond to Grease. Hear the well known songs come to life with the thrilling sound of a full orchestra.


Back by popular demand - Teenage Kicks - BOOK NOW

Aimed at teenagers from 14yrs up,  this course is based on Kieran Quinn's popular Teenage Theme Night series in Sligo. It will focus on improving the performance levels of already accomplished students. Students themselves will pick a theme at the beginning of the week and the repertoire and lessons will be based on music drawn from this theme.

Through collaboration with Kieran and their peers, students will be led on a challenging yet fun journey that will include instruction on accompaniment, close harmony singing, and how to interact positively with an audience, and with your fellow musicians.

Music Tech & Rec- BOOK NOW

This class is an introduction to modern sound recording. Students will learn about recording audio, equalization, creating loops, adding FX, vocal tuning, pitch shifting, editing, virtual instruments and mixing. Everyone will get involved in creating a piece of music either playing, singing or generating percussion loops and will cut and edit the piece to make it truly awesome.
