Enrolment Information

Forms • Fees

Enrolment for regular tuition at the New School requires a completed Enrolment Form and, except for those students/parents availing of payment plans, full payment of tuition fees. Booking of Intensive Lessons and Irish Music Tasters requires a deposit, with the balance due before the lesson or taster begins.

Payment Methods

We accept full tuition fee payments and payment plan deposits by cash, cheque, credit/debit card or bank transfer. We accept payment plan instalments by credit/debit card or post-dated cheques only. If paying by bank transfer, please do so well in advance so that the payment will arrive in our bank before your / your child’s tuition is due to begin. Also, be sure to identify clearly who is making the transfer, and let us know that you have done so. Our bank details for electronic transfers are:

Account Name: Waltons New School of Music
Account No: 52662401
Sort Code: 90 00 33
IBAN: IE 34 BOFI 9000 3352 6624 01


Although we schedule new students in order of enrolment and make every effort to suit student preferences, scheduling of private, partner and small group lessons will depend on available time slots with the most suitable teacher(s). The more days/times you are available for lessons, the more we likely we are to find a day/time to suit you.

Group Courses

Places in all group courses are available on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the date of enrolment. Many of these courses fill in advance of their start dates, and early enrolment is recommended.

Tuition Assistance

The New School offers financial assistance, for those who qualify, to help defray the cost of tuition. See Tuition Assistance for more information and an application form.
