Option 2: Small Group Tuition Opportunities

This strand differs from the classroom tuition programme in 4 key ways:

  • It is delivered to students electively participating, availing of a group lesson, with children leaving the classroom to attend the tuition during the school day, or returning to school after hours for lessons.
  • A resource bank of beginner instruments will be made available over time and is currently under development. When in place, instruments may be rented from Music Generation Offaly Westmeath for a nominal fee per term. Once available, the instrument (except in the case of piano) would be available to the child to take home.
  • Aimed towards beginner and intermediate players, it is expected that pupils (and parents) will understand that this strand requires a commitment to attend tuition on a weekly basis over an extended period of time and that practise between lessons is essential for progress to be made.
  • This programme requires a long-term commitment from participating pupils and their parents -- it is not a taster course.


It may not be possible to accommodate specific instrument requests made, however requests from groups who either already own instruments or are willing to purchase/ rent will be accommodated where possible.

Schools that would be able to accommodate a minimum teaching commitment of 2 hours (i.e c.8 pupils in 2 groups of 4) can apply for tuition, schools/ other settings that are interested in hosting after school lessons should read the attached requirements before applying for consideration.
