DabbledooMusic

At DabbledooMusic we are all about music. Music for listening, music for dancing, music for playing and music for working. Music for collaboration, creativity and music learning. DabbledooMusic aims to encourage more music making for children in the classroom and at home by creating a new system of online, interactive music education.

Dabbledoomusic is a multimedia musical experience for young music makers, combining words, illustration, sound, performance and animation.The project is the result of a collaboration between music maker Shane Mc Kenna and visual artist Killian Redmonk with help from graphic designer Trevor Finnegan and tech whiz Brian Michael Thornton. It aims to make music more accessible and fun for children and teachers alike, through free online musical activities.

Dabbledoomusic uses a unique system of colour-coded, animated musical notation. Unlike conventional notation this system is designed to encourage people of all musical backgrounds and levels of experience to participate through collaborative performance and composition.

The next step in making this system accessible and engaging for all users is to create a new website to replace the blog which now exists. The new resources will be fully interactive so that teachers and children in schools can create and compose their own animated musical scores for listening and performing. The website will remain free for all users.

The funding will go towards:
- Designing and creating a new range of interactive audio-visual content.
- Optimizing the website for use with interactive whiteboards in schools.
- Testing the new content in schools with children and teachers.
- Hosting website and online network for teachers and students to record and share compositions and performances.

We are looking for your contribution to help our team create new and innovative online resources for music education in Ireland and around the world. We believe this is the most effective and relevant way to teach music in primary schools and with your help its about to get even better.

The money raised will go directly to the design and construction of the new website and the creation of interactive resources.

This project is one which we are fully committed to and your contributions will be used with our full effort and our thanks.
