About Us

Rathdown Music School, located in Glenageary, close to Dún Laoghaire, was founded in 2004 to provide music tuition for both children and adults in the south Dublin area. It has developed into a thriving centre for musical excellence. All of our teachers are highly experienced and are fully committed to encouraging and nurturing each individual student to fulfil their potential and reach the highest standard possible.


We offer a local centre for Royal Irish Academy of Music grade examinations, and also cater for students who take Associated Board (ABRSM) examinations. Students are encouraged to take examinations, but students learning purely for enjoyment are equally welcome. Our students have achieved success at the Feis Ceoil, Newpark Music Festival and other competitions.


There is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require”.
