Last week marked the first week of Music Generation Louth’s move to providing online music lessons. Hundreds of students connected with their tutor through tablets, smart phones, pcs and macs to continue with their learning on piano/keyboard, drums, guitar, vocals, flute, harp, uilleann pipes, violin, fiddle and cello.
Coordinator Gemma Murray said ” The move to online teaching and learning has been really well received by everyone. We have enjoyed connecting with our learners again and are so pleased at their positive response to online music learning. Over the coming weeks, we will be introducing further courses and activities for young people to get involved in our online music making community. Music has a great potential to enrich our lives and never has that been so important as now.”
For young people interested in singing, Music Generation Louth is organising an online workshop with one of Ireland’s finest choral directors Alan Leech on Wednesday 29th April at 1pm. The workshop is part of Young Voices Louth, a collaboration with Sing Ireland to promote group singing among post primary school students. The workshop is open to existing and new members and totally free! Places are limited.
