Welcome to Waltons New School of Music

‘...a centre for all sorts of musical activity...and all this while promoting excellence...’
– Irish Times


We are currently enrolling for our 2015-2016 school year, which begins the week of 21 – 26 September; our children's group courses begin on Saturday, 26 September; and our other group courses and ensembles begin the week of 5 – 10 October. Our timetable and courses are filling quickly, and we recommend early enrolment to avoid disappointment.


Founded in 1994 and located in Dublin city centre, the New School is a comprehensive music centre, combining music tuition of the highest standard with innovative approaches to music education. Please browse through our website and learn about the many lessons, courses, workshops and external programmes we offer. Since no website can answer all of your questions, we are happy to do so – by phone, by email or in person.

Instruments and subjects taught at the school are listed below, or we suggest that you begin with our Lesson/Course Catalogue and then Departments & Faculty (for instruments taught at the school) or another subject area.
