Mill tunes up for Simply Music 28.08.12

SIMPLY Music’s new term of classes and workshops will begin shortly at Tullyarvan Mill, Buncrana.
Founded in 1995, Simply Music is now Tullyarvan Mill’s oldest established tenant organisation.
“We were, in fact, one of the very first community music organisations in the country," said Simply Music founder, Eleanor Lamb.
“Our approach to music is an inclusive one. We aim to make music accessible to all, regardless of age, ability, or any other barrier. Music should be fun, rather than stressful and competitive.
"In fact, recent studies have discovered the many and varied benefits of music at all stages of life. As well as the obvious ones such as development of social skills, turn-taking, the ability to listen, music for the very young can also help in such areas as spatial awareness, language development, mathematical ability.
"Music is the only activity which uses both sides of the brain, so the benefits are immense right across the age spectrum, into adulthood," added Eleanor.
Classes and workshops on offer range from ‘Exploring Music’, an introductory workshop for 4 – 7 year-olds; to classes for children and adults in traditional music (tin whistle, bodhran, fiddle, accordion), in pop/folk/rock (drums, guitar, keyboard, voice), and in classical music (piano, voice). Numbers will be limited. Registration day is this Saturday, September 1 and term begins on Monday, September 10.
