Irish schools keen on music instruments
An appeal has been launched aimed at people who no longer play on their favourite instruments – there are primary schools in Ireland that are keen for donations.
Part of Dublin City Council's Strings Project, the appeal looks to engage disadvantaged children in schools, reported the Irish Times.
Aspiring musicians each get access to an instrument and participate in a music lesson every week.
A qualified music teacher overlooks their development, ensuring youngsters get taught how to strum strings, press keys and bash drums with skill and precision.
The project is happy for people to donate all sorts of music instruments, from electric guitars to cellos, but is particularly keen on building up its collection of brass instruments.
“We have mainly violins so far, but eventually we hope to establish a youth orchestra, and with only string instruments, we'd just have half a youth orchestra," organiser Bobby Neill told the newspaper.
In October, the MP Valerie Vaz told her colleagues in the House of Commons that every primary school should have a piano.
