We understand that every student is different, and as such has different requirements. We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable and understanding environment, and our goal is to make every student the best musician they can be. We believe musicianship is a skill that can be learned, and given the right commitment, anybody can play to a standard they would be proud of.

We also believe in the benefits musical training can bring to the individual. From improving coordination and confidence to organisational skills and cultural appreciation, there are many recognised benefits to learning an instrument. Fundamentally, we believe playing music is fun, and the better you get, the more fun is it. That is why we are committed to making our students the best they can be.

From children to adults, beginners to advanced, if you love playing music, Dublin School of Music is the place for you.

Originally founded in Rathfarnham in 2003, Dublin School of Music was started by Craig Wynne when he realised there was a demand for high quality music education in South Dublin. From small beginnings, the school has developed into one of Dublin’s most successful centres for musical development, covering formal education in the shape of traditional classical grades to learning to play just for the sheer fun of it. We cover exams across a range of instruments from elementary grades to advanced diploma level. The school has a very high success rate in grades from RIAM and ABRSM exams, and also in RGT and Rockschool contemporary music exams.
