A warm welcome to the Department of Music, School of Creative Arts, Trinity College Dublin. The Department of Music fosters cutting-edge research and supports an intellectually vibrant musical community.

Welcome to the Department of Music

The Department of Music sees scholarship and practice as deeply intertwined. Regular colloquia, concerts, conferences, and festivals benefit from our location in the heart of Dublin. Responding to Trinity’s increasingly global role, the department is developing modules that address European, non-European as well as vernacular musics. The department’s interdisciplinary approach allows connections with other areas of study within the School of Creative Arts and beyond. Students come from a variety of performance and non-performance backgrounds; they share interests that span classical, popular, world, film, and game music. Staff include music historians, composers, theorists and industry specialists. The Department of Music also hosts the Music Composition Centre.

This website will introduce you to the staff, the courses, and the facilities on offer to those interested in the study of Music.
