The Music Department of the Ionian University (DMS) was founded in 1992. The island of Corfu has enjoyed a rich musical tradition and occupies a special place in the musical culture of modern Greece.
Drawing on the wide-ranging expertise of its faculty, as well as on the local cultural and historical resources, the DMS nurtures a special environment for learning, collaboration, and research. It has itself developed into a vital cultural resource for the local community and occupies a special place within the country’s academic music institutions.
The DMS is currently located in a historic building within Corfu’s Old Castle, in close proximity to the historic part of the town. The building hosts a library, lecture rooms, computer music studios, a computer lab, practice rooms, faculty offices, and administrative offices.
