Music Generation is Irelands National Music Education Programme. It aims to help children and young people to access vocal and instrumental tuition in their own locality. Music Generation is offering funding and support to establish Music Education Partnerships throughout Ireland. There are two music generation partnerships currently operating under the auspices of Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board. These are Music Generation Clare and Music Generation Limerick City.
