Music Mash Up provides access for young people of all abilities to learn music in a fun, relaxed and inclusive way.
Music Mash Up is a partnership project originally established by Cope Foundation, Foroige Lotamore, Foroige Mayfield, Foroige St. Joseph’s, Music Generation Cork City, Voices of Cork Choir and Community Volunteers. In recent years, the project has also expanded to now work on the northwest of Cork City in partnership with Foróige Linkpoint, Hollyhill.
Music Mash Up is an innovative community collaboration between Music Therapy, Music Education, Community Music and Youth Work, providing weekly group workshops in the areas of Vocals, Performance, Technology and Song Writing. Young people are also introduced to instruments including Guitar, Ukulele, Bass Guitar, Drums and much more.
