Applications are invited from local Music Education Partnerships to apply to Music Generation for funding to help children and young people access vocal and instrumental tuition in their local area. A total fund €1.8million is available in Round 2. Music Education Partnerships are eligible to apply for 50% funding, up to a maximum of €200,000 per year over three years. The closing date for Round 2 applications is Thursday, November 3rd, 2011. Detailed guidelines and all application details are available on www.musicgeneration.ie/involved/apply.
Music Generation will provide three-year seed funding to establish local services, which will be sustained by Music Education Partnerships on a long-term basis. It is the intention of the Department of Education & Skills that Music Education Partnerships will be continued into the future with Exchequer funding when the Music Generation donations cease.
