Imagine if every child and young person in Ireland could grow up as part of a community where they could experience inclusion, creativity, diversity and empowerment through music.
Music Generation is a national partnership programme whose mission is to create inspiring experiences for children and young people through music.
Together, we strive to transform children and young people’s lives by giving them opportunities to create, play and perform music in their own communities and on their own terms.
‘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
The vision that inspires us is the same today as it was when Music Generation was first established 10 years ago. We work to break down the barriers that may otherwise prevent children and young people from experiencing the pure joy of making music. We believe in the power of music to build confidence and creativity, to nurture leadership and innovation, to promote self-expression, connection and happiness. We want all children and young people to have the opportunity to realise that potential, regardless of circumstance.
Through access to the breadth of high quality performance music education, our mission is to transform the lives of children and young people, enabling them to develop their creativity, reach their full potential, achieve self-growth and contribute to their personal development within a vibrant music community.
