Music Generation Cork City launches exciting new music education hub

Cork city music hub
With the arrival of the new year comes an exciting new musical development for the young people of Cork City’s northside. A youth music education hub will be piloted by Music Generation Cork City in partnership with Cork Academy of Music.

A community-based youth music education hub, it will provide the opportunity for young people from local secondary schools to avail of small group music tuition and music theory classes, as well as giving them the option to experience music-making as part of small and large ensembles. Newly formed ensembles, which will include pop, rock, choral, wind and jazz/swing, will have regular opportunities to perform at the Seward Theatre at the Academy’s North Monastery location, which is provided by Cork City Council.

This is one of a number of music education hubs being developed across the City in partnership with Music Generation Cork City as part of its progression plan. One such hub has already been successfully piloted in partnership with SoundOUT at Terence MacSwiney Community College in Knocknaheeny.

Music Generation Cork City currently delivers music education programmes to 20 primary schools across Cork City, as well as various community, healthcare and secondary school settings in partnership with local community based music education providers. By establishing music education hubs in each of the main localities where music programmes are taking place, they will provide a path for children who have been learning music in primary school to continue with their music education, after they progress to secondary schools throughout the city.
