An Introduction to Irish Traditional Music

TRADAVARIOUS is a primary and after-school programme for children from Junior Infants to 6th Class delivered by Music Generation Galway County. The various elements of Irish trad music are explored in a fun and engaging way. Children learn the difference between tune types and singing styles. They also learn about the various instruments associated with Ireland’s traditional arts and get to try out a number of these.

Full term and year-long programmes offer whole class tuition in various instruments.

As part of the TRADAVARIOUS programme, a variety of instruments can be provided. The type of instrument(s) offered, and taught, is dependent on availability of Music Educators in your area.

Feel free to contact us for details of our one-day 'Taster' sessions, a 5 week pre-summer programme or full school-term music programmes.
