Let the music (tuition) begin!

Donegal Music Education Partnership (DMEP) organises music tuition and performing groups across Donegal – and we’re in full swing for 2016 – 2017!

We have around 500 children and young people (and some enterprising adults) getting individual or small group tuition, and 250 in performing groups. These days we’re busy updating all the registration details and sorting out everything from webtext lists to timetable changes. (We’ve also got the 10th anniversary concert of the Donegal Chamber Orchestra at An Grianan in Letterkenny on Sunday 16th October at 7pm – go!)

Many of our sessions are fully booked, but we do have some spaces left in a range of instruments across the county. For instance, how about learning drums in Carn on a Monday evening, or violin in Letterkenny on a Wednesday, or cello in Donegal Town on a Thursday? Or all three? 🙂 Ring 07491 76293 or email musiceducation@donegaletb.ie

The DMEP is a fantastic project (though we say so ourselves :-). Hundreds of young people are getting quality after-school training in voice and on a wide range of instruments. We welcome adult students too. We’re the umbrella body for a load of performing groups. These include the Donegal Youth Orchestra, the Donegal Youth Choir, junior choirs, the Errigal Groove Orchestra, the Errigal Singers (adult), Mind Your Quavers (adult return to music group) and more!

The DMEP is part of Donegal Education and Training Board. Much of the tuition happens in Donegal ETB schools, colleges and centres across the county. We teach mostly classical and jazz, with some contemporary/rock and traditional music. If you’d like to play or sing, get in touch!
