Many students come to us for dynamic piano lessons which are based primarily on the life-enhancing benefits of engaging in fluent musical expression. If you wish to prove your attainments with examinations, when appropriate, we will guide you well.
Ideally, prospective students should have a good piano that is tuned regulary at home for practicing, or be willing to purchase one subsequent to commencement of lessons.
If you do not have a piano, or access to a piano, it may be possible to practice on a digital piano or digital keyboard – while it is not quite the same as an acoustic piano, it may be better to start on a good digital instrument rather than a poor acoustic one.
If you do not have a good piano to start with, perhaps starting on recorder or other instrument would be something to discuss with us.
Young Children become Fluent in Music as Easily as in Language
(with Proper Guidance)
It is important that musical learning develops evenly across all areas of music: performance, literacy, and musical knowledge.
We teach children from four years of age, provided the parents are 'active-observers' at the lessons and willing to support continuous development at home, for example, by repeating the lessons each day. Teaching kids younger than six years requires a different approach that includes more parental involvement and a playful atmosphere. At this age, children are acquiring language skills and they achieve fluency in their native language very quickly with little effort. Similar gains can be made in music. Many famous musicians started learning at such a young age. Starting younger than six provides a wonderful foundation for learning in the future. An early start supports progress in music and also has benefits that seem to reach out to learning in general - not only in music.
We can discuss this further when we meet.

Intermediate and advanced students are encouraged to memorise a wide repertoire and to build the skills, techniques, tone production and stylistic interpretation that are appropriate for their repertoire. We prepare for examinations, but our main focus is to foster intelligent musicianship in performers who will communicate emotional and spiritual insights in their playing. We would be delighted to discuss this further with you when we meet!

Music students who are proficient and preparing new music may require guidance in their preparation: setting targets and pacing progress; performing with informed style and expression; with communicating the deeper meaning of the music to your audience. Perhaps you may want guidance from an informed listener.
If you are preparing for a special performance, academic examination, external diploma or competition, contact us for either a course of lessons or for occasional lessons as will best meet your requirements.
A listing of all the music subjects we offer is available here.
If you wish to pursue a course of piano lessons, contact us to request a meeting (or audition).
Many of our local students travel quite a distance to our face-to-face lessons. As part of our digital outreach initiative for students wishing to study with us from further afield, one-to-one piano tuition is available by pre-booked appointments via Skype. Please contact us for details and/or to arrange an initial call to establish that the connection will work well. While we welcome enquiries from all over the world, please note we are based in Dublin, Ireland (Western Europe): all lessons are in 'English (UK)' and fees are commensurate with our costs locally. Our Skype piano teachers are highly trained and have qualified with at least a Masters degree in music. When you request more info, please include your Skype name in the comments.
