Big congrats to our 14 year old student Eimear McCardle who just did her first 2hr gig in the Caledonian Keady on Sunday evening.
Eimear has written a huge batch of her own songs which she plans to record/release professionally and also plans to go busking in Belfast very soon.

Here's one of her own fantastic original songs called "Just Stay Little."

Absolutely so proud to announce that our very own 14 year old student Eimear McCardle is playing her very first 2hr gig in the Caledonian Keady this Sunday 29th Aug from 6pm-8pm

We couldn't be any happier, as that's what a large part of our schools culture is all about. Giving young people the tools to go out and perform themselves and to reap the rewards from all the hard work they've put in.
Massive big good luck Eimear

Our very first small summer camp was divided into three groups. Each group had the opportunity to try out a number of different instruments, with the goal being to do some kind of performance on the last day.

These kids only met each other on the Monday and completely blew us away with this performance on the Friday

Big well done to their tutor Eoin and assistant tutors; Sarah, Oran and Emma

** Summer Camp Success **

We just completed our first ever M.D Rafferty Music School "Summer Camp" today.
The summer camp comprised of giving a select few students the opportunity to try their hand at different instruments which included; guitar, bass, drums, piano, ukulele, Mandolin, vocals and also helped to harness students creativity with songwriting/dance workshops.

We'd like to thank all parents/students for their support throughout the week and really hope the kids enjoyed it as much as we all did

Special thanks also to our fantastic team: Eoin, Conor, Dolan, Oran, Sarah and Emma, who helped make our first ever summer camp such a success

It can only get bigger and better from here on in 😎

Hi folks, this Saturday 12th June, myself and the nephew Cillian and possibly the niece Aoife are having a wee jam on the Mall Armagh from 11am-1pm in support of Carlas Hope and the cancer fund for children. Everyone's welcome down for a bit of crack

**Note From Carla's Hope Page**

Hi everyone, back in April a dear friend of Carlas, Selina Haughey​​ set about organising a fun outdoor charity event in Armagh City on Saturday 12th June to raise money for Carla. Back then we could not have imagined that by the end of April, Carla would no longer be with us. However, having given it much consideration & having consulted with Carlas family it has been decided to go ahead with the event in memory of our beautiful friend and her family have requested that any moneys raised be donated to a charity close to Carla & her daughters hearts, Cancer Fund for Children

So this Saturday the 12th June, Armagh town will be filled with live music & buzz with buskers on the streets, on the Mall there will be face painting and a walk kicking off around 11am. So call into town next week if you can, take the kids and join in on the fun, take your guitar or instrument & join in on the busking too, it’ll be a great day & a lovely tribute to our dear Carla. Hope to see you there x

Heard the best one today. Our older student Brendy said he done 1200 steps and his bpm read 120 after one of his lessons. Great health advertisement right there; strum all your favourite songs at 90 whilst also burning calories at the same time 😄
