Irish music scene comes together to host free workshops for teenagers

Words: Dylan Murphy

Noise Music is providing free workshops for people aged 14-18, with Gemma Dunleavy, Max Zanga and more providing knowledge and the skills to get started at North Clondalkin Library later this month.

Getting involved in the music industry is intimidating. Especially, when you don’t know where to start. However, Noise Music is giving young people in Dublin a foot onto the ladder by inviting a host of the local scene’s trailblazers to host workshops and conversations to inspire the next generation of creatives.

Taking place at North Clondalkin Library from February 23-25, the programme is open to anyone aged 14-18 with a love of music. February 22 sees a Q&A hosted by Tebi Rex’s Max Zanga featuring Gemma Dunleavy and Joel Safo (A92 Collective). On February 23-25, a series of free workshops in beat-making, producing, rapping, singing, DJing and performing with some of Ireland’s finest Pop, Hip Hop and Electronic musicians will take place from 11.00-16.00 in North Clondalkin Library.

Gerry Horan, Director, Noise Music said, “At Noise Music, our goal is to ensure that young people have a chance to learn new skills, create, perform, and have their voices heard. These free workshops provide an opportunity for creative young people to collaborate with professional musicians, create new music, learn new skills and meet other young people with similar interests. I would like to thank all the artists, performers and Music Generation South Dublin for their time and for showing young people that careers in music and other creative sectors can be accessible to anyone and that there are many different paths you can take to a career doing something that you love.”

Aideen Mc Loughlin, Music Development Officer – Music Generation South Dublin said, ‘‘Music Generation SouthDublin is delighted to fund and support this fun and exciting opportunity for young people to access professional artists in South Dublin. Our aim is to ensure young people have access to the various forms of music and arts, all in a creative and accessible learning environment.”
