Our professional development workshops reinforce the benefits of a musical journey, explore holistic education, boost your confidence in areas of creative expression, and help you integrate music concepts into the daily program.

Thank you so much for running the Workshop here at Ballykin for the staff.
They were so excited to come to work yesterday and share their new songs with the children.
From the office I could hear the girls using singing for their transitions, which was just so nice to hear!
The children have really enjoyed learning some new songs as well as listening to their favourite stories being sung to them.
So thank you for refreshing the staff with new ideas and motivation to use music more in their program. It is exactly what I was hoping for when arranging the course.
