Tralee, Killarney, Listowel, Killorglin and Dingle
A large team of dedicated and expert teachers provide tuition in a wide range of music instruments and voice, Ballet and Modern Dance, Tap and Theatre Dance, Speech and Drama and Musical Theatre at centres in the above towns.
Students normally enroll annually for courses starting in September. However, single lessons or short-term 'taster lessons' can also be arranged at any time. Flexible payment arrangements can also be made in advance with the school office or, indeed, with the teacher.
Students may simply learn for pleasure or may opt to opt examinations up to and including internationally recognised Diplomas.
Students are also prepared for Junior and Leaving Cert Music examinations, third level entry auditions, competitions, workshops and master classes, public performance and interviews etc.
Students are encouraged to participate in performing ensembles provided by the School. These include orchestras, choirs, bands, dance ensembles, a musical/light opera society, youth musical Society (LOST YOUTH) and flute choir.
