Workshop Wrap Up

Two weeks ago we ran the first Crescendo Music Workshop for 2012. The Resources for the Primary Music Classroom workshop was entertaining, resourceful and great fun.

Over 50 of us gathered at the Arana Leagues Club bright and early on Saturday morning and listened while Andrew Lange showed us all how to use an Interactive White Board. Then Nathan Cahill wowed us with his Ukulele skills and demonstrated how to use a webcam to teach your class the Ukulele. 

Debbie O'Shea showed us all her favourite puppets, toys, games and songs that make your music room fun and entertaining for your kids. We sang songs and played games. A great day was had by all!


If you missed this workshop and would like to purchase the comprehensive notes from the day just email Debbie at

You can see all the photos on our face book page here. And see a couple of videos of the games on YouTube here.

If you are interested in the next workshop, 'Totally Treble - Choir Workshop (Primary treble voice repertoire and teaching ideas)', you can down load the registration form here or see the website for more details.
