Performing arts for young people

It is important that musical talent in children be identified at an early age and developed to its full potential by the best teaching.  Here in the Conservatory of Music and Drama at DIT we have the professional expertise and proven track record for the development of musicians, singers and actors of a very high calibre, many of whom enter the profession here and abroad.  This year we are introducing a range of new group classes to meet growing demand.  Places for these classes will be allocated on a first come first served basis. In the case of 'Musical Theatre for Teenagers' only, auditions will take place towards the end of June.A limited number of places available in each group
