TY Music Trip

On Wednesday October 11th, Transition Years, accompanied by Ms White and Ms Boyd attended a day of workshops in The Irish Institute for Music and Song, in Balbriggan. The students learned about Irish Music, how to play the bodhrán and African drums and how to record and produce their own records. They also completed a Barber Shop singing workshop followed by a wonderful lunch provided by the The LaLa Restaurant and Café. They concluded their day with a pit-shop for some shopping in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre. Thank you to Ms Boyd and Ms White for organising such a wonderful and memorable day.
