We also have the most comprehensive Online Tuition Programme of any music school in the country. Taught by the same expert teachers as our in-school lessons, online lessons take place in your home, which can be anywhere in Ireland. Online tuition is private, effective and surprisingly easy to do.

And we have a comprehensive Outreach Programme of interactive music and cultural workshops and longer-term music courses and lessons that since 2001 have taken place at several hundred schools, youth centres and other organisations in Dublin and around the country. The goal of our Outreach Programme is to provide opportunities for music tuition and active music making that may not otherwise be available in schools or the local community. Our intention is to expand young people’s musical knowledge and encourage imaginative thinking, creativity, a positive self-image and a respect for their own and others’ cultural heritage.
