Background Information | Music School

Music has always held an important place in the educational ethos of Rathdown School, and the establishment of the Music School has enabled this role to be further developed, offering tuition in singing and a wide range of instruments to both Rathdown students and students from the wider community.

Our students have been featured on the All-Ireland Talent Show and won prizes at the Feis Ceoil, Newpark Music Festival and other competitions, while also enjoying success at Royal Irish Academy of Music examinations. A number of students have gone on to third-level study in music at conservatories (Royal Irish Academy of Music, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama) and universities. Above all, Rathdown Music School aims to encourage a passion for music among its students.
