Information for Parents

DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama is a conservatoire – a place of highly specialized learning in music and the performing arts.  The conservatoire learning environment is quite different from school, with an emphasis on one-to-one or small group learning and teaching.  Studying at the Junior Conservatoire requires a high degree of commitment and motivation, intensive daily practice and, especially in the early years, support at home to nurture and develop emerging talent.
