Don’t give up easily, because there’ll be many obstacles or roadblocks placed in your way. If you enjoy challenges, you’ll enjoy the hotel industry. It is physically and mentally very challenging but also extraordinarily rewarding, a lot more than most other industries, providing you’re willing to stay the course!

Newpark jazz education programmes move to DCU

Renowned Newpark jazz education programmes move to DCU

*Subject to accreditation.

It is proposed that from September 2017 the BA in Jazz Performance, currently offered by Newpark Music Centre will be renamed the BA in Jazz and Contemporary Music Performance, and will be accredited by DCU.  A key feature of this programme includes the proposed continuation of an opportunity for students on the programme to transfer into Berklee College of Music in Boston (www.berklee.edu), one of the most prestigious music schools in the world in the field of contemporary music.

Proposed programme modules include Instrumental and Vocal Tuition, Aural Training, Ensemble Performance, Composition and Arranging, Jazz History, and Music Business. Application to the programme will be through the CAO, with the audition/performance assessment, subject to accreditation, taking place on Saturday, 8 April  for September 2017 entry. An aural/theory test is not required. 

As entry will be by audition, this will be a restricted entry programme, meaning prospective students will need to have selected this as one of their choices when completing their CAO application in February – availing of the CAO Change of mind facility will not be an option.
