To date, 5,000 children around the country have had access to music lessons under the Music Generation project.
U2 and The Ireland Funds stepped in and donated €7m to the scheme in 2007 when funding was cut.
Today, the Education Minister Ruairi Quinn confirmed that his department will begin to fund it on a phased basis from July 2014.
