GRD Music Programme

Galway Rural Development - Thursday, December 08, 2016

GRD were delighted this year to be the lead and deliver a primary schools ,music programme in Ballinasloe and Tuam. More than forty students in Scoil an Chroí Naofa, Ballinalsoe and Scoil Mhuire, Tuam took part in weekly music lessons where lessons and  instruments were provided by GRD for the use and enjoyment of the children. Students from Ballinalsoe have been developing their musical talents in Brass and Percussion and will perform for their school at their end of year show. 

The girls in Scoil Mhuire, Tuam, have made wonderful progress in their mastering of the Violin and have fully  embraced their new found love of music.

Well done to all the students who have taken part, to their tutors and to the school staff for their full support. GRD look forward to continuing this enriching programme in 2017 which will lead to a sense of achievement and accomplishment for the children and ultimately a chance for them  to discover and develop their musical hidden talents.
