…because every musician starts somewhere
Music Generation is a national partnership programme whose mission is to create inspiring experiences for children and young people through music. They strive to transform children and young people’s lives by giving them opportunities to create, play and perform music in their own communities and on their own terms. Longford School of Rock was set up locally in 2013 and moved under Music Generation Longford’s programming in 2021.
Music Generation Longford School of Rock is a community-based music education organisation founded to encourage and support young musicians to develop towards collaborative, live music performance. We believe that playing music instruments and singing with other people (ensemble) is the best way to learn music and gain confidence to perform live. It also helps children and teenagers to meet other people who like music, gain personal confidence, social skills, and problem solving skills. Our Music Educators are local musicians who are passionate about playing live music and are interested in passing on their skill to the next generation of young musicians. Music Generation Longford is locally funded by LWETB, Longford County Council and Creative Ireland Longford.
