County Wexford School of Music (CWSM) provides a high standard of music tuition in County Wexford. It encourages students to pursue their personal best and gain excellent life skills through music education.
CWSM and County Wexford Youth Orchestra (CWYO) were founded in 1980 by London musician Alan Cutts and Eileen Herlihy, vice principal of a local secondary school.
In September 2013 classical guitarist, David Creevy became Principal and strives to maintain the high standards achieved by previous management led by Patrick Molitor. Since becoming principal, David has helped secure funding for the 3RD Wexford Youth Orchestra Festival to take place in the Wexford Opera House in March 2015. In his first year he has engaged visiting performers for master classes and initiated CWSM’s first in house competition. He also hosted performance etiquette workshops and gave 3rd level audition preparation talks.
The school has many distinguished alumni including Fintan Cleary, Rosaleen Molloy, Aileen Mythen, Aine Whelan, Deirdre Masterson, Roisin Dempsey, Therese Canavan, Helen McGrath, Brigid Nolan and more. A not for profit organisation, it is managed on a day-to-day basis by its principal, David Creevy.
Music is taught from our spacious premises in Summerhill, Wexford Town, and also through our branches in both the Holy Faith and St. Mary's Secondary Schools in New Ross.
County Wexford School of Music is operated as a guaranteed limited company by a board of directors and is a registered charity (CHY 19037).
