Han­nah and mum launch new ra­dio se­ries for chil­dren


Bray People - - THE NOTEBOOK -

HAN­NAH MASTER­SON from Bray and her mother Louise launched a brand new ra­dio se­ries for chil­dren called ‘ Nora agus Dora’ to co­in­cide with the one-year an­niver­sary of RTÉjr.

The se­ries is avail­able on the RTÉjr app which is free to down­load, on­line and on RTÉjr ra­dio on Sun­days at 11 a.m.

It is a fun, ed­u­ca­tional and en­er­getic 10 part se­ries for young chil­dren, where they can learn new vo­cab­u­lary and en­joy ex­cit­ing and catchy mu­si­cal num­bers.

Nora and Dora ex­plore var­i­ous topics and en­cour­age au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion. They test the lis­ten­ers in the ‘ Guess­ing Game’ round and con­clude by trav­el­ling to the imag­i­na­tive ‘Land of Spraoi.’

‘It was my first ap­pli­ca­tion to the BAI so I was de­lighted it was ac­cepted and backed by RTÉjr,’ said Han­nah.

‘My­self and my mum Louise co­p­re­sent and play the char­ac­ters Nora agus Dora. It works very well as we are both the­atri­cal, mu­si­cal and flu­ent in Ir­ish.

‘I scripted it and we com­posed the songs to­gether. it was nice to be fully hands on across the board and see a project through from be­gin­ning to end.’

Han­nah and Louise (pic­tured be­low) run Ju­nior Mu­si­cals in Bray and their stu­dents make up some of the 500 chil­dren that have been in­volved in RTÉjr pro­gram­ming over the past year.

Han­nah has been teach­ing for over 10 years and has an MA in broad­cast­ing and a de­gree in Ir­ish and mu­sic.
