Music Instruments for Primary Schools

A highly innovative scheme was launched in 2002 by Mayo County Council Arts Office in association with the Mayo Education Centre. Seven sets of percussion instruments were secured through the hard work of the Mayo Music Development Association, initiated by Mary Curran as part of her residency with Mayo County Council. The instruments, suitable for children of any age up to 13, were acquired through funding provided by the Arts Council. The Mayo Education Centre is the key lending agency for the instruments, retaining five sets for direct use in primary schools throughout the county, enabling the schools to borrow the instruments for a school term. The remaining two sets are available through the Mayo Arts Service for use in community and outreach workshops.
