Music Generation Laois School of Rock and Pop Saturday Jam

Calling on:

  • Bass Players
  • Guitar Players (acoustic and electric)
  • Singers
  • Keyboard/piano players
  • Drum Kit
  • Brass (saxophone, trumpet) players
  • String players (violin, cello, double bass)

Music Generation Laois are re-launching their Saturday jam time, on a pilot basis between now and Christmas 2017. There are currently 2 Jam sessions already available to Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music students – which Tutors refer students on to, on Wednesdays and Fridays. The concept of the Saturday Jam is, therefore, an opportunity for more advanced students only based on an audition process, working with Paul McIntyre.

Times: Saturdays 12:30pm-1:30pm

Standard: For intermediate to advanced players, who have been playing for 3 years or more

Cost: Free of charge to Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music students

Non- Music Generation Laois and Laois School of Music students will pay €15 membership between now and Christmas (remainder of Term 1), and €50 for Term 2 if the pilot continues (Jan-June 2018).

How to apply: Spaces are allocated on an audition basis – send an email to with your name, DOB, instrument(s), standard (how many years you have been playing, any significant performances or achievements in this time), Parent/Guardian contact telephone number and home address.

As this is an advanced ensemble, expression of interest emails are to come from young people, applications made by parents/guardians on behalf of their child will not be accepted.

Deadline for receipt of emails: 12noon Friday 17 November 2017

Auditions: Auditions will take place from 12:30pm-1:30pm on Saturday 18 November 2017
