Music Class Reviews

“Fantastic music lessons … The children took great enjoyment from them. For me as a teacher, I felt I learned how to teach music. I certainly have a lot more confidence in teaching the subject. We all here at St.Eunan's N.S. are looking forward to seeing you again next year.” Mary Callaghan, St.Eunan's National School, Raphoe
