Music Generation Taster Day for First Years

Tyndall College students are very fortunate to have access to the Music Generation programme where they receive a musical instrument on loan as well as a weekly group lesson for the duration of the school year at a greatly reduced cost. The benefits of this programme are immense as our students develop not just their musical performance skills but also their confidence, time management and group work skills.

Students have the opportunity to learn flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet or trombone. They will perform at various events during the school year and play as part of the county brass and woodwind band BoomBrasstic from Second Year onwards. Students can continue with their instrumental lessons all the way up to Sixth Year, use their instruments as part of the Junior and Leaving Cert Music practical exams and even work towards grade exams if they wish.

First Year students got to sample all of the instruments with Bill McGrath from Music Generation and also senior Music Generation students Erinn Lennon, Ewan Hutchinson and Sophie Kennedy. Information letters have gone home about the programme.

We are very proud of the immense talent we have in Tyndall College and look forward to many more years of music-making as the programme continues to grow and develop!
