What our students say

Niall Kinsella

I thoroughly enjoyed doing my H.Dip with the LSMD at Griffith College! It exposed me to a broad range of modules and was tailored to our individual strengths and needs. Since completing the course I have gone on to do a Masters and I teach piano & music theory.
