What is the Meath Music Education Partnership?
The Meath Music Education Partnership manages Music Generation Meath and is a subcommittee of the Meath and Meath Education and Training Board. It is made up of representatives from the Meath and Meath Education and Training Board, Meath County Council, Ceol Oirghialla, Section of Music, Dundalk Institute of Technology, local music promoters, the local primary school sector and the PPMTA (Post Primary Music Teachers’ Association).
The Partnership was established in 2010 to take a strategic approach to the development of music education for children and young people in the county.
The Partnership commissioned extensive research on music provision for children and young people in Meath. The information informed the development of the Meath MEP’s strategic plan and proposal to Music Generation for seed funding to set up a coordinated and comprehensive music service for the county. In May 2011, it was announced that Meath was one of the first three counties selected for participation in the programme.
