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!

Theatre / venue

In September 2014 we launched our very own in-house theatre with a special concert by Jack L (aka Jack Lukeman) and since then have hosted an array of acts including guitar legend Pat McManus, magician Jack Wise (pictured above), Rob Strong, tribute bands, cover bands, puppet shows, musicals, plays, and many more  diverse shows and events.  The Live Room Theatre provides the students of WAMA with fantastic opportunities to see professional artists, both national and local, including access to live music acts that would otherwise typically perform in pubs and clubs.

 

Not only is it a space for the pros to perform in, it's also a forum for our own students who can participate at open mics, teenage kicks, battle of the bands, recitals, plays, musicals and even play support to the professional acts. The Live Room Theatre is a gem in our facility and is a service that we are very proud to offer!  Events in our theatre are for all ages, are fully supervised, and are always free from alcohol.  Tickets are discounted by up to 50% for WAMA students and their immediate families.
