Have Your Say! Music Education Opportunities for Children and Young People.
Fingal County Council, in partnership with the Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board, invite you to complete a survey that will help us understand your views regarding access to performance music education for children and young people in the county.
This research will support a submission to Music Generation, the national performance music education programme. Your views are important to this process and will enable the partners to develop and deliver music education programmes that suit the needs of children and young people, aged 0 – 18 years, now and into the future.
There are three surveys to choose from:
Children & Young People www.surveymonkey.com/r/FingalMusicYoungPeople
Music Education Providers & Musicians www.surveymonkey.com/r/FingalMusicProivders
General Public www.surveymonkey.com/r/FingalMusicGeneralPublic

Musician-in-Residence Programme 2019
Call For Musicians
Fingal County Council is inviting expressions of interest from Musicians who wish to be included on our Musicians’ Panel, with a view to delivering high quality music tuition to children in primary schools in the academic year 2019 / 2020.
Call for Schools
Fingal County Council Arts Office is offering schools an opportunity to apply for partnership support to initiate a new music project, or develop an existing music project within their school. The project must engage a professional musician to deliver lessons that take place on the school grounds and within school hours. The school must match fund the proposed amount they apply for and commit to a two year agreement.
Early Years (0 – 5 years)
Fingal Arts Office began significant work in the area of Early Years arts provision in 2012. Projects to date have provided early childhood educators, parents and children with accessible workshop opportunities while also supporting artists’ to conduct action research to assist professional development in the area. Partnerships have been formed with education institutions, crèche services, Fingal County Childcare Committee, and artists working in this specialized remit of education. These programmes will assist with the formulation of a strategic policy for the development of Early Years arts practice in Fingal.
Children & Young People
Children & Young People (5 – 18 years)
Fingal Arts Office provide for children and young people through an annual artist in residence programme in schools and through alternative projects which take place outside of the formal education system.
Fingal Arts Office works in partnership with leading education and cultural institutions, researchers and artists to provide educational resources that are accessible, timeless and encourage self directed learning. By 2014 we will have produced two publications featuring the works of fourteen Irish Artists who form part of the Irish Art History Leaving Cert Curriculum for students, teachers and those interested in learning more about some of Ireland’s most prolific artists and their art practice. We will produce a report on an early years music and visual arts programme for early childhood educators, artists and others interested in this field of work to encourage peer learning across the sector. Projects such as Creative Exchange which provide classroom teachers with assistance and support to learn the skills required to deliver quality arts education programmes in their classroom allow for funding and resources to reach as many as possible.
