Music Generation Limerick City (MGLC) has been transforming the lives of children and young people in the city since 2013, with an innovative, inclusive music programme, delivered by professional musicians.
The programme has grown exponentially since the launch and we now work in a wide variety of contexts, with all ages and levels of experience.
What is common across all our activities is a focus on creativity and self-expression and a commitment to practical, hands-on music making in every session.
We give children and young people the tools and freedom to be creative, recognising and nurturing skills of self-expression in a non-directive way.
This increases self-belief and emotional awareness, leading to improved mental and emotional health.
There is also a strong community component to the programme – we bring together people from different musical, cultural and social backgrounds to create and enjoy music together.
