A shared learning opportunity for County Wicklow residents aged 55 and over, presented by Music Network.
Building on a successful 2021 collaboration on the pilot programme Making Music with Sonamus: the Wicklow Teaching Residency, Wicklow Arts Office and Music Network now roll out a programme of musical activities for county Wicklow residents aged 55 and over, curated by leading professional ensemble Trio Táin.
The focus of this project is on returning to playing an instrument and sharing the joy of group music-making. Participants will receive tuition from the trio on harp, flute, recorder, violin or viola. Tuition is free of charge and instruments will be provided if necessary for the duration of the project.
Participants will receive eight one-to-one instrumental lessons with the relevant musician, in addition to three group lessons with others playing the same instrument. The project will conclude with three large ensemble sessions, where all participants will join together with the professional musicians to play the music learned during the project. As well as playing together, the participants will enjoy three informal coffee sessions which will include chats on wide-ranging musical topics.
The project will be based at Wicklow County Campus, Clermont House, Newrath, Rathnew, Co. Wicklow. To apply, either visit this page, or phone 01 4750224. The closing date for applications is 8th November 2022, at 2pm.
