Des Carty Music School

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.
