We are dedicated to providing high-quality research-led teaching and supervision and host a regular series of research seminars together with international conferences. We enjoy facilities located on NUI Maynooth's historic South Campus including lecturing, studio and practice spaces. Our suite of degrees fosters vital skills and includes the undergraduate BMus, BA, and BA Music Technology programmes and, at postgraduate level, a variety of taught MAs as well as the MLitt and PhD by independent research.
The Department is renowned for its long and proud tradition of communal music making. Our concert life is underpinned by the steady rhythm of rehearsals involving students and staff from across the University and members of the local community. Our professionally directed ensembles include the Chamber Orchestra, Chamber Choir, Irish Traditional Group, 150+-strong Choral Society, Ladies’ Choir, Guitar Ensemble and contemporary music ensemble Fuaim. The annual schedule of concerts includes weekly lunchtime recitals (given by guest performers, students and staff) and special evening and afternoon concerts which deepen students' learning and cultural opportunities.
The distinctive education we offer here is founded on traditional values enriched and enlivened by the diverse research expertise of our staff. The Music Department is a vibrant, stimulating and friendly place in which to study. Do take some time to find out more about our work and please contact us if you have further questions.
