Music Generation Louth have just launched their summer programme for 2014.

The summer programme offers plenty to keep children and young people busy over June and July with a great mix of classes at traditional music school, orchestra school and junior song school.

Classes cater for all abilities and levels and will take place in Dundalk and Drogheda.

Traditional music tutors will be joined by renowned fiddle player Zoe Conway, guitarist John McIntyre, Scottish harper Catriona McKay and Shetland fiddler Chris Stout for what promises to be three great days of traditional musical learning- master classes, composition workshops. If you are young traditional player, this offers a fantastic way to develop your musical skills and learn a wealth of new music from Ireland and further afield.

Classes will take place at St Oliver’s Community College, Drogheda from Monday, 30 June to Wednesday, 2 July from 10am-2pm daily and cost €45.

A special summer school for all members of orchestras, bands and ensembles and anyone learning an orchestral instrument will take place at O’Fiaich College from Tuesday, 8 July to Friday, 11 July from 10am-2pm daily. The school costs €55 and will include loads of fun workshops, rehearsals and great music.

Junior song school, a music camp for 8-12 year olds who are interested in writing, recording and performing their own songs and music will also take place at O’Fiaich College from Tuesday, 22 July to Friday, 25 July at 10am-2pm daily. If you play an instrument, make sure you bring it along. Classes are €55 and will be packed with lots of fun activities and an opportunity to meet others who love music.
