WALTONS MUSIC AT THE POST-PRIMARY MUSIC TEACHERS ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE

We were delighted to meet all the teachers who visited the Waltons Music stand at the Alexander O’Callaghan Hotel last weekend. It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm and interest of all present and to get some insights into teachers’ concerns around the post-primary curriculum and music education. We will be posting out Waltons Music Educator Discount Cards to all the teachers who signed up and we suggest that those who didn’t have time at the weekend to sign up on line. To register, click on our Music Educators button on our web homepage or go to our Children / Education category.

Our lucky winners in our PPMTA Conference Registration Draw are as follows:

1. Ann Lynn from Gairmscoil Mhuire Vocational School in Athenry who has won a CME Xkey Professional Keyboard;

2. Dee Coyle from Cork who has won a Zoom H1 Handy Recorder.

Congratulations to you both and you will be receiving your prizes in the post very shortly.
