The Cassidy Academy of Music is a private music school situated at the Sandyford Hall Shopping Centre, Dublin 18. The Cassidy Academy provides high quality music lessons in South Dublin. The Academy also has a wonderful mother & baby class programme in Sandyford that is hugely popular with local mothers.

The ethos of the academy is to instill a love of music in its students. At the Academy all lessons are taught by qualified and friendly teachers. An open relationship between teacher, student and parents is encouraged and all progress is communicated frequently back to the parents of the student.
