Welcome to The MacCafferty School of Music, the school that has provided singing lessons for the people of Derry for over sixty years. The school was started by the late James MacCafferty in the late fifties when he started to teach singing, piano and musical theory to young and old alike. Since his demise in the mid nineties the school has been run by his daughter, Una, in whose capable hands it has grown from strength to strength.
The school now focuses on singing and musical theatre classes together with the associated theory for the various examining bodies. The pupils are not required to enter for examinations or to enter for the various feiseanna and the focus is always to make the experience a pleasant and enjoyable one. Music for fun is our intention especially with our younger pupils.
All classes are cancelled from St. Patrick’s Day 2020 until September because of the coronavirus.
We are not taking entries for the May/June examinations because of the coronavirus.
Feis Dhoire have announced that the 2020 feis at Easter is cancelled.
Class feis results as far back as 1980 are now in the archive section. Have a look! We have also inserted a video link from the 2006 class feis of the winners in each competition. Enjoy them.
