About Songschool

Our longest running workshop programme which is based on songwriting (words & music) and can include recording, performance or music technology elements. There is  a strong focus on collaboration, creativity, confidence building and self expression with the students. The ability to play an instrument is NOT necessary and the use of technology is often discretionary.

Ideally suited to Transition Year, JCSP and LCA Programmes but can easily be adapted for primary and other secondary school needs. 

Songschool workshops can be delivered in 1 or 2 days, depending on requirements. Participating students receive their work on CDS or digitally. 


Our workshops are delivered in your school and we have tutors based in several counties including Clare, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kilkenny, Meath, Wicklow & Westmeath.

The students, after a Songschool workshop, are so pleased with themselves, they have big grins and can’t wait to hear the song THEY wrote, performed and recorded. Songschool isn’t just about writing a song, it’s also about exposing the students to each other’s talents, teamwork, co-operation, patience and having a voice and being heard
