The Core Documentary

We are delighted to share this with you!!!

The Core is a resource and creative hub for young musicians aged 12-18. It is run under the auspices of Music Generation Mayo and housed within the Ballina Arts Centre.

This inspiring and uplifting documentary, filmed between September 2018 and August 2019, follows young Mayo musicians at various stages of their musical journey, from learning an instrument right through to performing to an audience of thousands.

The documentary also highlights how The Core has impacted the local community, inspired a generation of young songwriters and spring-boarded a countywide music scene.

October Camp 2019 & New Members Induction

The Core October Camp 2019The Core Mayo ***OCTOBER CAMP 2019***
Tuesday-Thursday 29th- 31st, 11am til 1pm
___________________________________Attending a camp at The Core is a great way to meet like minded musicians and singers, get creative together and have fun. We are proud to say that our camps have forged great friendships over the years and even created bands that are still together today and continue to release music and perform around the county.

We understand however, that this is not everybody’s goal so there is no pressure put on participants to perform or do anything they are not musically comfortable with. We aim to make learning as inclusive and fun as possible here at The Core. This camp is open to participants aged 12-18 year old. Age is not a barrier as the way the camp is facilitated allows for peer learning and groups are formed in such a way that participants rely on each other and get the best from the experience.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn about various musical topics in a practical and collaborative fashion. These topics include, songwriting, recording, production and performance.
Spaces are limited and we advise parents to book early to avoid disappointment.

The camp runs Tuesday to Thursday- 11am til 2pm. October
