WHAT IS MUSIC GENERATION?
Music Generation is Ireland’s National Music Education Programme that transforms the lives of children and young people through access to high quality performance music education.
HOW IS IT FUNDED?
Initiated by Music Network Music Generation is co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, The Department of Education and Skills and Local Music Education Partnerships.
There are over 50 students taking part in the programme. Our tutors this year are Mr. Justin Ryan who is teaching Drums and Guitar, and Mr. Declan Whitson who is teaching Flute, Clarinet and Saxaphone. Students can rent instruments for a nominal fee and can use them for thier Junior and Leaving Certificate Practicals. It is hoped that Music Generation will expand to concerts, orchestras and bands witin the school. The programme is open to 1st, 2nd and Transition Year students.
