About us​​

Music Generation Galway City is a performance music education programme that provides opportunities to access a range of high-quality music experiences for children and young people across Galway City. Music Generation Galway City is part of Music Generation, Ireland’s National Music Education Programme which transforms the lives of children and young people through access to high-quality, subsidised performance music education. Established by its parent company Music Network, Music Generation is co-funded by U2, The Ireland Funds, the Department of Education and Skills and Local Music Education Partnerships.


Our mission is to empower children and young people across Galway City to realise their full potential through access to, and participation in, high quality performance music education.

Opportunities like this help me gain confidence and jump out of my shell!
