Fundraising & Sponsorship


Learning to play a musical instrument can be daunting for a child. They must concentrate on coordinating their fingers, tongue, breathing, posture, reading notes, and keeping count. It can be challenging for parents to find a suitable teacher for their child’s chosen instrument. Before joining the orchestra, aspiring musicians should be taking lessons with a music tutor.

However, there’s some good news! Julianstown Youth Orchestra has partnered with various music schools and private instructors who can provide lessons to support their journey with the orchestra. We’re pleased to share this list with you; for more information, please email
