The Discovering Music programme offers a structured introduction course to core principles of music practice delivered in a 20 week programme, across four tiers:

Tier 1 – Pre-school/Early Years;
Tier 2 – Children aged four to twelve years of age;
Tier 3 – Children and young adults aged twelve to eighteen years of age;
Tier 4 – Introduces whole class instrumental tuition at Primary & Post-Primary age.
