We have music education programmes suitable for pre-school, primary school & secondary school students. Take a look at our programmes here.
Music Generation Carlow is a new music education service for County Carlow.
It is part of Music Generation Ireland – a national music education programme initiated by Music Network and seed funded by a multi-million euro philanthropic donation from U2 & The Ireland Funds.
This programme was developed by local musicians & teachers to enable quality music education programmes to be established in Carlow. Kilkenny & Carlow ETB & Carlow Local Authorities are committed to supporting the programme.
Our aim is to inspire and enable children and young people from all backgrounds and regions of County Carlow to learn to play musical instruments, sing and make music with others.
Our core values
County Carlow Music Education Partnership is guided by the following core values: access, quality, partnerships, diversity, creativity and sustainability.
“As a band, we believe music tuition should be available to anyone who wants it, whatever their background. We want to help to make this happen for Ireland’s children and young people – our ‘music generation’ of the future.”
“We hope that Music Generation will inspire Ireland’s young musicians, who might not otherwise get access to such valuable teaching. We are delighted to see the progress of Music Generation and to be involved in this much-needed initiative for Ireland.”
