Discounts on Waltons World Masters Series Events

Since 2003, the New School’s acclaimed World Masters Series has brought to Ireland some of the world’s most extraordinary musicians and performing groups. Currently-enrolled students (and parents of students) receive 20% discounts when booking tickets for any Waltons World Masters Series event. To avail of this discount, please drop by the school office or email us at with your name, the concert that you would like to attend, and the subject, day and time of your lesson or course. We will give you a discount code, which you should then provide when booking online, by phone or in person. A maximum of four tickets per student per concert may be purchased under this scheme.

Discounts from Waltons Music
