A Music Open Day with a difference will be hosted by DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama on Saturday 1 March 2014 from 11.00am to 3.00pm.

Budding musicians, singers, or those who simply want to learn how to appreciate music should make their way to DIT Chatham Row, Dublin 2. This is an ideal opportunity for parents, teachers, and prospective junior students to discover the many junior and part-time study options available at the Conservatory of Music and Drama at DIT.

During the day, parents and children will have the opportunity to try out a range of instruments, to see, hear and feel instruments they may wish to learn. Tutors will be on hand to demonstrate instruments and to answer any questions that parents and students might have.

So whether you want to find out what's the best age for your child to start music lessons, or which instrument would suit you, DIT staff will be delighted to help you with any questions that you might have on music studies at the Conservatory. In addition, throughout the day visitors will be treated to individual and ensemble performances by current Conservatory students of all ages.

The Conservatory offers a great range of learning opportunities for young children through its Early Years Music Programmes. The Kids' Club is open to children as young as three, while Pre-Instrumental Classes cater for five to seven year olds. Seven to nine year olds interested in learning how to play a wind instrument may start in the Recorder Classes.

The Conservatory also welcomes students who are already proficient on their instruments and wish to pursue a more comprehensive programme of music study, through individual lessons, musicianship, chamber music and ensembles. Students who are thinking of pursuing third level-music studies will be interested in our Music Excellence Programme for 4th to 6th year students.

With a tradition stretching back over a hundred years, DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama has produced many of Ireland’s finest musicians and actors. Graduates of the Conservatory have followed careers in classical, jazz, opera and traditional music performance, music education, music technology, composition, the dramatic arts and the other cultural industries. Staff, many of whom are internationally recognised performers, encourage their students at every level to achieve the highest artistic and intellectual standards.
