Belleek

 

Erne Music Club began in October 2001 with 6 children and has gone from strength to strength. It currently has 54 children attending weekly music classes to learn to play traditional music on a wide variety of instruments. The Club has an open door policy and accepts any child over 6 years of age. Music classes are affordable and accessible to all members of the local community which is cross community and cross border. Children from a wide catchment area enjoy meeting other's who attend different schools - without this music class many would not have had the opportunity to meet.
