Impact of Musicantia Work to Date

The running of the music school for one academic year has begun to develop a strategy for more effective integration of Roma young people through developing their skills and confidence to participate in public concerts and community events.

It has given a group of Roma young people and their parents ambitions and pride in their achievements. It has helped to keep Roma young people away from negative behaviours through constructive out of school occupation and the gift of music..
Over time, dedication to developing their skills in musicianship and love of performing will encourage Roma young people to see the benefits of remaining in full time education as well as foster their love of music in general and pride in their specific Roma cultural and musical traditions.

As this is the first dedicated youth programme for Roma in Ireland, it aims to show Roma youth how Irish youth develop and grow in confidence through youth Music School Activities to Date
