The Magic of Music at Christ Church Cathedral

The Magic of Music is a free musical programme that Christ Church Cathedral runs for primary schools in the Dublin area as part of its education and outreach remit.

The programme is an original way to get children interested in music and is based on the New Revised Primary Music curriculum.  It has been running successfully in Ireland since 2004. It’s packed with exciting, fun, practical exercises which allow children to enjoy and value all types of music including classical, traditional Irish, rock, jazz and gospel. It also helps participants to obtain basic musical literacy, while encouraging their creativity and performance skills. No musical experience is required from the children  or supervising adults who take part.

The Magic of Music programme runs every week during term time and participation is free of charge. For further information or to enquire about signing up a class from your school, please call our Education Officer Ruth on 01 677 8099 or email her at
