Eden School of Music was founded in 2014 by Emilija Paliulyte. Over the past 5 years the school has expanded from one room in a house, outgrown 2 buildings and is now situated at custom fitted sound proofed classrooms at 100 JKL Street.
We pride ourselves on hiring only the very best of teaching staff – all our staff are qualified to a minimum of Grade VIII on their chosen instrument, all are fully Garda vetted and most are full time musicians with a wealth of experience, musical knowledge, and a passion and desire to share that knowledge with the young people of Edenderry.
We believe that learning an instrument not only teaches a new skill, but also aids the personal development of children and young adults.
Our reputation for excellence has seen the ongoing growth of the business, and we are continuously adding teaching hours to our schedules to keep our waiting lists as low as possible.
We are always happy to chat to parents and potential students, and our front desk is open daily from 2pm where we’d be happy to discuss all things music with you.
