Cork City Music College was founded in 1987. The mission of the fledgling College was to provide a comprehensive music education for adults and children, recognising that every student has different interests and capabilities. In 1990 the College moved to Drinan Street, and from here the Music Outreach Network was developed.
This scheme provides instrumental tuition by fully qualified teachers in multiple different locations throughout the city and county.

Opportunities for ensemble playing are provided in our many ensemble groups including String Ensembles, Flute Ensemble, Jazz Band, Guitar Ensemble and Piano Duets groups.
In recent years Cork City Music College has moved to Coláiste Éamann Rís which is now the main teaching and administrative centre which provides easy access and parking on-site.
