Let the music (tuition) begin!

Donegal Music Education Partnership (DMEP) organises music tuition and performing groups across Donegal – and we’re getting all set for 2016 – 2017!

If you’re already on our books, make sure you’ve re-enrolled and avoid any nasty surprises (‘What! Last year this was my class!’) If you’re a newbie, we have a waiting list we use to fill available places. Hopefully you’ll get one ūüôā Full details on the new timetables will be made available in the coming weeks.

At this stage it looks like we’ll have places available in centres including Gweedore, Buncrana¬†and Ballyshannon. And we need more players for violin, viola and cello, as well as¬†brass and woodwind in some centres.

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!

We are now accepting re-enrolment forms for tuition and performing groups for the  2016-17 term, which can be downloaded  here.
