Music Generation Offaly Westmeath - bringing the Instrument Outreach Programme to life!
MGOW has entered its 2nd academic year with a dramatic increase in opportunities for children and young people to access performance music education across Offaly and Westmeath.
Building on the success of our school - based Kodaly programme, the introduction of MGOW's Instrument Outreach Programme brings yet another route for young people to access performance music education across Offaly and Westmeath. Through its work with schools and other agencies, new alliances are being created to improve access routes for children and young people into MGOW's Instrument Outreach Programme!
A great example of this is MGOW's exciting partnership with Mullingar School Completion Programme and Midlands Regional Youth Service (Mullingar) in the development of the Mullingar Music Jam. Building on the success of the Summer Music Jam, Mullingar Music Jam is developing into a hub where youngsters of all ages can access music tuition on a variety of instruments in a relaxed supportive atmosphere under the expert guidance of MGOW tutors Justin, Frank and Maebhdh. Planning is already underway for a Christmas Gig to showcase all of the learning that has been taking place, and if the standard of the Summer Music Jam Family Day is anything to go by, it will be awesome!
