Foundation Programme for Primary Schools


Foundation Music Programme

 Music Generation Wicklow’s Foundation Music Programme is now running in 26 Schools throughout Wicklow. A second round of application was invited in June 2013 for inclusion in the 2013-14 academic year and all schools that applied are now engaging in this programme.  Music Generation Wicklow is currently providing Foundation Music Education to over 2000 young people throughout the county. If you are a primary school and missed our application process but would like to inquire for your classes, contact Ann Catherine Nolan Manager on 0404 60505.

The purpose of the Foundation Music Programme is to provide an introduction to music performance for young children from Junior Infants to Second Class. This strand utilises various pedagogical methods providing children with tuition in singing, percussion, recorder, tin whistle, music notation and ensemble playing.  The structure of the Programme will involve weekly sessions of 60 minutes per class group to take the music experience for children beyond the formal curriculum in a specialist led Programme.  Please note that at Junior and Senior Infants level this Programme is usually only run for half hour duration per week.
