“Bhí an t-ádh lenár scoil a bheith in ann a bheith páirteach sa chlár Symphonic Schools. Tá ár ndaltaí i rang a Cúig ag fáil teagaisc ó theagascóirí den scoth ar bhonn seachtainiúil sna huirlisí práis, gaothuirlisí adhmaid agus cnaguirlisí. Tá na páistí ag baint an-taitneamh as an deis seo atá faighte acu na huirlisí seo a fhoghlaim.”

A mixed instrumental tuition programme for schools enabling children and young people to play in chamber groups from an early stage of learning an instrument. Opportunities will be developed for schools from around Galway County to come together and play in larger orchestral ensembles. Symphonic Schools is supported by Galway County Council and Galway 2020.  

“Our school have been very lucky to be included in the Symphonic Schools programme. Our 5th class pupils have been receiving weekly tuition in brass, woodwind and percussion from top class tutors. The children are really enjoying the opportunity to learn these instruments.”
