Directors' Welcome

Becoming Part of the FAM

"The minute a student walks in they become part of the FAM community. By learning music in a vibrant environment each student maximises their potential for growth." - Dónal Kearney

We believe that music education can have a profound impact on anyone of any age. For children, it provides a tool for personal growth, teaches discipline, develops listening and communication skills while for adults it can also positively influence wellbeing. Whether our

students are preparing to pursue a career in music or simply want to learn for

fun, we have the teachers, facilities and courses to guide them on their lifelong

musical journey.


We are proud of our teaching team, most of whom work professionally on an international level. We are proud of our community, whose support allows us to have the greatest impact possible. We are proud of our students, whose enthusiasm, talent and positive attitudes make them a pleasure to teach.


Each year our students win prizes in local competitions, star in local productions, talent shows, and sing in our prize-winning choral programme. Our students have successfully auditioned for music schools ranging from BIMM in Dublin to Berklee College of Music in Boston. Our students have gone on to study music at Trinity, UCD, Maynooth University and they have recorded on TV series like HBO'S Vikings and advertisements like Beats by Dre.


We support every kind of music-making and do our best every day to help students find

the instruments and style that suits them best.

Warm Regards,

Michael T. Dawson & Dónal Kearney
