I am incredibly honoured by this appointment. I am eager to begin my work as Head of MTU Cork School of Music to help us realise our highest aspirations as a world-class centre of performing arts education. Our staff, students, alumni, donors, friends, loyal audiences and the greater MTU community will ensure that the future of MTU Cork School of Music is very bright. At the MTU Cork School of Music, our passion isn’t limited to making music and drama; our passion is ultimately community. As I look back on the past 18 months, I am heartened by the strength and resilience of our community. At its core, MTU Cork School of Music is composed of exceptional individuals, all of whom work powerfully towards a shared mission and vision – succeeding together through high quality, holistic and inclusive performing arts education.

Dr Glasheen-Artem succeeds Aiveen Kearney. The new Head of the School described Kearney as ‘a tireless leader in CSM. She has consistently put the education of our students to the fore and has led with kindness and generosity throughout her tenure. I want to thank her for her leadership, vision and dedication to CSM and I wish her the very best in her retirement.’
