Eden School of Music was founded in 2014 by Emilija Paliulyte. Since then, the school has expanded from one room in a house, outgrown 3 buildings and is now situated in custom fitted, soundproofed classrooms at Monasterosis Business Campus.

We pride ourselves in hiring only the very best of teaching staff – all our staff are qualified to a minimum of diploma level in education, fully Garda vetted, experts in their field of tuition and bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and a passion and desire to share that knowledge with the young people of Edenderry.

We believe that studying a creative art form, be it music, art or drama 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 creative with you
