Our variety summer camp is just around the corner! It's almost full, just a few places remaining in some age bands. If you were hoping to join us we would advice you contact us as soon as possible to secure your place. Our office is open from 9:15am to 5pm all this week Mon-Fri.


In our variety camp a student will sample our music school, our stage school, and our art school, as well as perform in our theatre. Lots to look forward to. Can't wait! smile emoticon


Welcome to WAMA

What We Do!

Stage School


The Waterford Academy of Music & Art (WAMA) is a stage school, music school, art school and theatre all under one roof!

Located just behind the garage at Passage Cross on the Dunmore Road, WAMA is now the premiere music and arts school in the South-East


We provide tuition for students (both adults and children) with a range of goals and skill levels, form beginner right through to NFQ Level 5, preparing them for college or university.


We make a student's stay with us be as comfortable, inclusive, productive, and enjoyable as possible.  To achieve this we have professional premises, professionally developed syllabi's, and professional staff who have degrees, gigging experience, and teaching experience.  In fact, every teacher here has a minimum of 5 years teaching experience, some with over 10 years experience. We also provide a range of performance opportunities for our students from concerts to open mics, from plays to full scale musicals, and from street theatre to outreach programmes.


We have given our lives to this school and its pupils.  We built it up gradually from scratch over the last 11 years with no 3rd party investment, continuously reinvesting every profit back in to the business to provide the state-of-the-art facility and equipment that we have today.  We love what we do and care about the happiness and progress of our students.


Please feel free to call in to chat to us about your needs.  We are here to help!
