About UsKingston Academy Of Music
Who We Are
The Kingston Academy of Music was founded in 2008 to enable the fostering of a community-friendly ethos; supporting local and international musicians, visual artists, graphic artists, and writers in all areas of Performance, Teaching and Learning, with a clear mission of educating our future audiences and future performers of all ages and all levels. Our vision for the future is to combine the academic and creative possibilities of music education and performance at all levels and in every genre, and to build on the foundations that have been carefully structured.
Vision and Mission
The unifying factor and vision of all of our projects is to achieve the personal development and growth of Ireland’s next generation of performers. We continues to focus on our student-centered, musical skill-building programs which combine musical excellence with teaching in support of many areas including the support and development of careers that may combine musical excellence with teaching, advocacy, community outreach and leadership.
All achievements to date have been fueled by a genuine passion to share and nurture our future performers – and that remains at the core of our ethos.

“The director attracts tutors and pupils that mirror her ethos, that’s what makes the Academy special.
The Academy is a really nurturing environment and that’s what makes it special.”
"When I first came to the Academy, it was like home to me, I loved it.
I never expected or intended to sing on stage, but you get such encouragement that you can’t resist.”
Ethne Burke- Doran
“It’s not the business of teaching you see coming out (in lessons), it is the love of arts, heritage and culture that shows you the value of the Academy.”
