Music Matters are gearing up towards their annual graduation concerts this November/December. Every year, the Music Matters teachers award certificates to students who have passed a level during the year. For each instrument there are set pieces throughout the books and when a student passes one of those pieces, they may graduate that level. This year's graduation concerts are spread over two weekends to accommodate Violin, Violas, Cellos, Pianos, and Guitars. For more info see Newsletter on MusicMatters main page.

This is a big year for Music Matters. Since September, the school has agreed a lease on a larger portion of Loughrea Rugby Club, enabling Music Matters to develop the venue into an arts centre. It is also the turn of Music Matters to take on the National Suzuki Summer Camp! This will run from July 3-5th. Venue tbc. There are lots of exciting fundraising plans for the coming months, so stay tuned for more info.

In other news, Music Matters is finally in it's 30th year! Time to start planning the birthday party!
