Rathdown Music School

A Place of Creativity

We value the development of self-expression and creativity as a key part of the girls' academic and personal development.

Our Music and Drama performances and productions form a core component of our students’ lives and education. They are of an exceptional standard, and many students continue to pursue their talents in these areas long after leaving school. 

The superior facilities of our purpose-built Music School allow the girls to explore their talents in full. A large auditorium allows us to host performances, choir and orchestra rehearsals as well as individual lessons and public events. There are 8 sound-proofed practice rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art Music Tech room. 

Individual music lessons in a wide range of instruments and vocal styles are offered by our dedicated team of music professionals, led by Adele Johnson (formerly Principal Viola with the RTE National Symphony Orchestra)  

In addition, our choirs and orchestras are open to everyone in the school, and there is a packed performance schedule throughout the Academic Year. 

All our instrumental and vocal lessons are available to external students, we also have an adult’s choir so if you are passionate about singing, please come and join us!
