Music Generation

Music Generation Wicklow now in its third year is a new music education service for children and young people in County Wicklow. It is part of Music Generation, Ireland’s National Music Education Programme, initiated by Music Network and funded by U2 and the Ireland funds. Locally, Music Generation Wicklow is managed by lead partner Kildare Wicklow Education and Training Board, supported by Wicklow County Council and a Music Education Partnership Sub-Committee.

The initial focus of Music Generation Wicklow was is establishing school based programmes working in a variety of different ways, and we are happy to say that now in the region of 3,500 children and young people are participating in musicianship, choral and instrumental programmes. The programmes are being rolled out by a thirty-two strong professional musician team.
