My daughter started attending this music school at 3 years of age, attending pre instrumental classes. She has now reached Grade 8 piano in her piano exams. My son also attended and learned piano. There was no problem when he decided to take a break from doing grade exams and pick his own pieces to learn. All of the teachers are excellent and Eileen was always very helpful and accommodating.
The school is a very friendly place and welcomes with an open heart. There are always people available to advise you and share any concerns you might have. We were always accommodated with days and times that suited us. I couldn’t recommend the school and all the wonderful people in it highly enough. I have come to the end of the road with CSM now but I have many fond memories of our time spent there
My sons have been attending Castleknock School of Music for over 14 years, each have developed a love for music and hope to study it in college. Over the years they were privileged to have some great teachers who have gone on to make names for themselves in radio, television and on the stage.
My Daughter has been studying vocal and theory music for the past 3 years and is about to start saxophone in September which she is very excited about. Thank you to all the staff for growing my daughters love and appreciation of music. Long may it continue.
I highly recommend Castleknock School of Music (CSM) to anyone looking for an excellent music school. CSM offers high quality tuition. Eileen Brogan and her team are highly experienced and dedicated to teaching music. My son Alexander (19) has learned piano over the past 12 years and is passionate about music (a big thank you to his piano teacher Varo for teaching Alex piano!) My daughter Sophie (8) is learning violin. Thank you Eileen for your dedication and we really enjoy coming to see the Christmas concert & especially the summer concert. I wish CSM continued success in the years ahead.
My son has been learning guitar at the Castleknock school of music for 3 years now and loves it. The teachers are very child friendly and focused and regularly facilitate the children being able to perform in a safe and supportive environment. Excellent preparation for either exams or just informal playing. Very much recommended.
I have 2 daughters in CSM and are very well looked after in their music learning, both instrumental and music theory. I'm very glad for the support we receive from their teachers and school administration. There is no better music school than CSM.
We've been with CSM for many years now with our two children, since preliminary to now Grade 6/7. 100% happy we did. Very helpful and professional staff, Eileen, Margaret and crew come highly recommended.
This school has great management which tries to cater all needs and be flexible. There are very good teachers as well - the key is to find one to develop a good relationship which works three-ways. This local school democratises the music teaching for everyone from a very early age unlike the well-established conservatories which only accept by audition. If your little ones like music and put dedicated effort to it, there is a path to the bigger schools as they progress, like two of my children now studying in RIAM.
We have two children who have been students of CSM for years. Our daughter has been with CSM since Mini Music; our son too. Abbie is now 13 and plays piano, guitar and writes her own songs. Bobby loves his guitar and is starting the piano this autumn. Both children love the school and their teachers. We couldn't recommend the school highly enough; the staff, the teachers and the facilities. Well done Eileen et al.
The teachers are nice and supportive and work to a very high standard. I can see the great progress my sons have made again this year. They are both looking forward to returning in September.
