Music Generation Galway City is a new music education service for the City of the Tribes. As part of the national networks of “Music Generations” all over Ireland, its aim is to offer all children and young people a chance to participate in music-making. Like Barack Obama’s “leave no child behind message”, Music Generation Galway City is here to help any child, regardless of their background or means, to enjoy music in their life.
As part of Music Generation Galway City’s “Spreagaigí” programme an exciting new after-school music hub is starting in September 2020 in Galway Community College (Wellpark Rd ). Parents and young people are now invited to register for weekly lessons. The hub will be open on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Lessons will be given in small groups (max 3 ) so making friends and having fun will be as much a part of the experience as learning a new musical instrument or skill!
There’s a huge variety of instruments available to choose from and all will be delivered by expert musicians who have vast experience and training. What’s more Music Generation Galway City will be able to rent you some of the more expensive instruments for a small annual fee.
If this all sounds expensive, you’re wrong! A 30-minute lesson every week costs just €5.50 per student. For older groups (aged 11+ ), the lessons will be for 45 minutes, at a cost of €8 per week.
Of course, Covid 19 hasn’t gone away. The hope and aim is to welcome students into Galway Community College on Tuesdays and Thursdays for lessons but if required, online lessons on Zoom are the Plan B.
