“The Music Generation Initiative provides a fabulous opportunity for young people to immerse themselves in musical experiences; to learn about music and experience performance. Our group thoroughly enjoyed working with Karen and Sarah, and all the wonderful musicians. We observed an overall positive effect on confidence and self-esteem as a result of our involvement. We would highly recommend Music Generation Galway City to other youth Groups.”
"We have been extremely happy to be involved with Music Generation. It has been a superb initiative, giving a fabulous opportunity to children who may not ordinarily have such musical access. Karen, and her team, have delivered to us a very professional, age-appropriate programme of lessons, run to the highest of standards over the past year. The children are fully engaged, excited about their lessons, and are so proud of their progress and ability. We feel this is just the beginning, both with the school developing a large group of children playing the violin together, and for the children individually, in starting them with a musical instrument. Thank you Karen, Ciara and Ingrid."
“We have just paid our second term fees and my son can’t wait to start the new term. Music Generation is a unique opportunity for him to learn from experienced musicians. He has learnt about other instruments besides his own and is mixing with kids from different years in the school.”
"Our partnership with Music Generation was one of the highlights of 2019 for us! The young people involved in the Music Generation group have gained huge benefits throughout the programme, including learning new musical skills and techniques, meeting like- minded young people, and growing in confidence both inside and outside of the group! The tutors have provided the group with excellent mentorship and have been hugely successful in passing on their competent knowledge and skills in a fun and relaxed environment. Music Generation has allowed the young people attending our service access music lessons that they might not have otherwise being able to, and thus have been able to develop and hone their passion for music. I have seen first- hand the positive impact that Music Generation has had on the participants including improvements in behaviour, focus, confidence and well-being. We look forward to many more years of collaborative work with this excellent initiative!"
