At Leeson Park School of Music, we provide the highest quality music
education for children in a caring and stimulating environment, where the
abilities of each child can be brought to their full potential.
We have over 30 years of experience nurturing the innate musicality of each child through child-centred teaching from our highly qualified, professional, enthusiastic, specialist teachers. We have developed a reputation as a centre of excellence in music education providing professional tuition in a nurturing and encouraging environment.
Children begin their musical education in Music Kindergarten where we have classes for children from 3 months upwards. The early stages of this program aim to develop a love of music in the young child while introducing the basic elements of music through games and other playful activities. As the children progress, their musical skills are developed and they are introduced to the basic elements of music notation in preparation for starting an instrument. Our instrumental training uses the Colourstrings approach to provide a seamless programme through
Pre-instrumental, Instrumental and Musicianship training up to 18 years of age.
Our teaching is very child-centred in the early stages but is capable of taking students to the highest level of performance on their chosen instrument. Where appropriate, students will be prepared for entry to third-level music institutions. Many of our students have been prizewinners at Newark Music Festival and at the Feis Ceoil.
