Music Generation Kilkenny
Music Generation Kilkenny is a new music education service for children and young people ages 0 to 18 in county Kilkenny. It is part of Music Generation – Ireland’s National Music Education Programme, initiated by Music Network, co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, the Department of Education and Skills and Local Music Education Partnerships. Locally, Music Generation Kilkenny is managed by Kilkenny Music Education Partnership and funded by Kilkenny County Council and Kilkenny and Carlow ETB.
It is anticipated that planning for the set-up of Music Generation programming in County Kilkenny will get underway at the end of 2018.
Once established, Music Generation Kilkenny will develop a range of affordable and accessible performance music programmes for children and young people in their local area. This will include the coordination of music tuition services within the county, working in partnership with schools, community music groups and tuition centres in the formation of choirs, ensembles, access programmes, composition and songwriting projects, and more, across a range of musical genres and styles.
