'What we want to do is really simple. We just want to make sure that everyone, whatever their background, gets access to music tuition. That's the idea.' (Bono/U2)
Since 2010, Music Generation has been creating opportunities for children and young people across Ireland to realise their potential through music. Each year, our team of inspiring musician educators work together to open up the world of music to young musicians, breaking down the barriers that might otherwise prevent them from learning, making, playing and performing.
Our mission is one of transformation. We believe in the power of music to support young people's personal growth and social development, to broaden the horizons of possibility and to bring communities together.
As we approach our 10th birthday year we are as united as ever in this mission and excited by the possibilities of the decade ahead.
Music Generation is 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. musicgeneration.ie
