2015 is already shaping up to be a bumper year for Music Generation with each of the twelve Music Education Partnerships putting the finishing touches to their programmes and initiatives for, what promises to be, one of our most exciting years yet!
With over 20,000 young people and children already making music in over 60 programmes and initiatives across the country, the number of participants is set to rise again this year, with each Music Education Partnership creating a bespoke performance music education programme specific to its local area.
From ukulele orchestras to traditional music ensembles, weekly tuition classes and music jams to demo recordings and large scale choral and orchestral projects, it’s all happening at Music Generation in 2015!
If you know a child or young person who loves music but hates practicing, Sorcha Pollak’s recent article in The Irish Times on Music Generation offers some great tips on how to keep the passion for music alive. Read the full article here.
So, we promised you a treat to start the New Year … we hope you like this and that it gives you a flavour of what we’ve been up to here at Music Generation.
