Music Instruments for Post Primary Schools

The Mayo Education Centre, Castlebar, in partnership with Mayo County Council's Arts Office, launched Music Instruments for Post Primary Schools in 2004.

The instruments were purchased by Mayo County Council Arts Office in order to augment the music resources available to young people within the County. Each set comprises of 32 percussion instruments, including drums, shakers, tambourines, snares and bells. Three sets were purchased in total.

The Mayo Education Centre will be the key lending agency for the instruments and will retain two percussion sets for direct use in post-primary schools throughout the county, enabling schools to borrow the instruments for up to four months.

The remaining set is available through Mayo County Council Arts for use in community and outreach workshops.
