This is the second phase of Music Matters which has been organised in association with Louth County Childcare Committee and Louth Leader Partnership.
In preparation for the residencies, pre-school staff attended a musical training workshop last month hosted by Louth County Childcare Committee. The workshop gave twenty-four pre-school leaders practical ideas and tips for teaching music effectively to very young children. They then get the chance to see the ideas in action when Music Generation Louth’s team of music tutors deliver a series of six music sessions in each of the pre-schools during April and May.
Gemma Murray, Coordinator of Music Generation Louth explained, “We are delighted to have the support of Louth County Childcare Committee and Louth Leader Partnership to run this very successful programme once again. Music Matters will give the children involved the chance to develop their musical skills. Also, and very importantly, the pre-school staff involved will have the opportunity to develop their own skills to become confident and capable musical leaders for their groups”.
Music Generation Louth is a music service for the county that aims to help children and young people access vocal and instrumental tuition in their local area. It is led by Co. Louth VEC and is part of Music Generation, a national programme for music education initiated by Music Network with funding from U2 and the Ireland Funds. Create Louth and Co.
