General Information: 

Songschool Ltd. is a private company which has been committed to delivering quality music education services and experiences throughout Ireland since 2001. What started as a small talk to a local transition year (TY) class has now expanded into the largest provider of music workshops to secondary schools in the land - in the last two years we have delivered almost 300 workshops in 28 counties around Ireland.

Mission and Objectives: 

Songschool’s mission is to provide top quality workshops and projects in a variety of music and digital multi media related fields to people of all ages and musical ability. We are committed to delivering excellent and rewarding music education experiences, with an emphasis on creative expression, collaboration and enjoyment.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Over the past number of years, Songschool has grown and now also specialises in delivering unique and customised music education projects for various other groups, local authorities and bodies; one such example being the cross border (Northern Ireland) Shankill/Shankill Music Project which received the Co-operation Ireland Highly Commended Project of the Year Award in 2002. Songschool delivered the world’s first Percentage for Arts Music Project in Milltown, Co. Kerry in May 2005 with Iain Archer (Ivor Novello Winner) and during 2007, the Skerries Community Intergenerational Project.
Songschool’s transnational projects to date include a music workshop in Charleville, Western Queensland, conducted with students from the Distance Education Centre (a.k.a School of the Air), and an original intercultural arts project, An Sorcas Ceoil, delivered in Bad Friedenwielde Germany in conjunction with government agency Rural Dublin Leader Company.
Currently Songschool are facilitating a transnational project between students from Rush Co Dublin and El Prat De Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain.
