CDETB welcomes the official launch of Music Generation in Dublin city! We are proud to be the lead partner for Music Generation Dublin City.

As part of a national network, Music Generation Dublin City (MGDC) is managed and funded locally by City of Dublin Education and Training Board, in partnership with Dublin County Council, and local music education partners.

Music Generation Dublin City is launching dedicated vocal-led music sessions developed for primary and post-primary schools in the Dublin City region. Music Generation is Ireland’s national music education programme which gives children and young people access to high-quality performance music education. With a mission to remove barriers of access to music and create inspiring musical experiences for children and young people, it is thrilled to expand its programming to reach more communities across the city.

Music Generation Dublin City was established in 2021 and to date has received enthusiastic feedback from successful pilot programmes in schools and Youthreach Centres across Finglas, Coolock, Raheny and the North Inner City. The team are now inviting more schools to collaborate with Music Generation Dublin City from September 2022!

CDETB Director of Schools, Mark McDonald said I’m delighted to chair this committee on behalf of CDETB and oversee the great work it does in primary, post primary and Youthreach sectors. Well done to Kieran, Stevie and all the MGDC team”.

Kieran McGuinness, Music Development Officer, Music Generation Dublin City – “Our plan for Dublin City is to bring high-quality performance music education into every community across Dublin City and try to positively impact young people’s lives – Whether that’s whole classes or small groups, we have programmes we feel can do that!”

Music Generation Dublin City aims to reach schools and communities across Dublin City Council areas and will commence a phased expansion from September 2022. Schools within these areas can complete an Expression of Interest form here.
