Testimonials

Victoria Massey, MMus graduate

'Although already established as a soloist at the Opera House in Venice, Italy, my year of study on the MMus (Performance) programme at DIT provided me with a valuable qualification which has enhanced my performing skills, broadened my repertoire, and helped develop my critical thinking skills through related research.

Cormac Kenevey, MMus graduate

'The MMus programme was an excellent opportunity to concentrate on specific areas of study in a supportive environment.  The Conservatory staff are extremely dedicated, enthusiastic and accommodating and this was a year very well spent.'

Cian Boylan, MMus graduate

'I found the year spent on the Masters in Performance (Jazz) in DIT to be a tremendously worthwhile experience.  It allowed me to focus on aspects of my playing and areas of music that I wouldn't have otherwise concentrated on, safe with the knowledge that there was the support structure in place to back it up. The facitilites are top class and the tutors were all seasoned performers and educators. There was also significant influence and cross-education that occurred through working closely with my musical peers on the course in both performance ensembles and academic studies.'

Seamus Crimmins, Executive Director, RTÉ Performing Groups

'DIT instrumental and vocal students demonstrate a high degree of musicianship, technical skill and professionalism when they work with RTÉ Orchestras, Quartet and Choirs.  It is vital for the future of orchestral music and music in Ireland that institutions such as DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama continue to produce students of the highest calibre for the profession.'
