Two new guitar groups open in Dublin
Young people in Drimnagh received brand spanking new guitars this week from the Musical Youth Foundation. Local kids will benefit from weekly lessons, practise sessions and a host of exciting music workshops and performance experiences at the St John Bosco Youth Centre over the coming months.
The Musical Youth Foundation guitars for kids programme is supported by the good people at the Stub Hub Foundation, a corporate advised fund of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
The MYF Guitars for Kids programme offers young people the opportunity to benefit from learning to play a musical instrument, an opportunity they would otherwise not have. Music Education is proven to build confidence and has an overall impact outside of the lessons themselves. Most young people engaging with music lessons will see an increase in their academic performance.
