As part of the commitment to the Our Balbriggan Plan, Fingal County Council and Dublin City University have partnered to bring the Boston-based Berklee Music School’s programme to Ireland.
31 of the 80 places on the three-day programme have been given to students from Balbriggan’s Loreto Secondary School, Ardgillan Community College and Bremore Educate Together Secondary School.
During the programme, participants also had the opportunity to audition to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston.
The students today took part in a concert to mark the end of a successful course in the Bracken Court Hotel.
The Groove School’s programme offers participants access to the Berkee method of music education, encompassing theory, ear training, improvisation, ensemble performance, and instrumental instruction.
