Speech & Drama – introducing singing and musicality from age 5 up with performance as the Pitch & Pulse Choirs.

Pitch & Pulse Productions – regular musicals open to all and giving children the opportunity to perform.

Pitch & Pulse Early Years – from birth upwards music and movement classes for babies, younger children and guardians.

My thoughts…

Music is such a fun activity involvement in it should be made available to all children.  Through Pitch & Pulse, Ardagh Music Room I try to facilitate a music education/experience for everyone and keep it fun, un-pressured and non-competitive.

All children love to sing, dance and act however there comes an age where self-consciousness take over and opportunities to take part in these activities become limited – competitive, structured and constrained – Pitch & Pulse aims to be fun, active and available to all.  Try it and see!
