Waltons New School of Music - Summer at the New School

Summer at the New School

Welcome to Summer 2018 at the New School!

In addition to private (one-to-one), partner and small group instruction in a range of instruments (including voice/singing), we offer summer versions of some of our most popular group courses, an acclaimed songwriting workshop, Intensive Lessons and Irish Music Tasters.

Many of our courses and workshops fill well in advance, and early enrolment is advisable.


CONTENTS
