Des Carty Music School

Important Notice

Due to measures introduced to combat COVID-19 Des Carty Music School classes

in RUA RED Arts Centre in Tallaght are cancelled from March 12th until further notice.

The Des Carty Music School principle aim is to introduce students to the life-long enjoyment and fulfilment that music can bring.  We emphasise the importance of live performance and encourage new musicians o participate in social musical gatherings.  Our classes cater for all ages and capabilities, and as individual students progress the courses develop to cater for this chance.  Aware that strict module-like structures, often set up initially to facilitate people, can ultimately stifle creativity we welcome students' input to help provide an enjoyable learning environment in which all musicians- teachers and students- are rewarded.
