1. What age should a child start an instrument?
It is recommended that 6 or 7 years of age is a good time to begin an instrument. It is possible to start earlier and this can be reviewed and discussed on an individual basis. For our younger learners we recommend a progressive music course called Rhythmic Rascals that begins as early as 6 months to 6 years. Individual tuition is available from a younger age depending on the stage.
2. Do we teach Adults?
Yes, absolutely! We have many adults who are either starting or coming back to music. We are firm believers in lifelong learning.
3. Can parents sit in on the lesson with their child?
Absolutely. From time to time parents are interested in seeing how the lesson is structured and also how their child responds. It also can help parents who have never studied an instrument to understand the benefits of music when they see the results of a weeks practise culminate into a successful performance.
4. Are gift vouchers available?
Gift Vouchers are available and can be bought for any occasion! It is the perfect way to encourage a friend or family member who is always talking about taking up or going back to an instrument!
5. How Much are the Fees?
Fees are as follows for individual tuition
30 minutes x 16 weeks: 404 euro
45 minutes x 16 weeks: 606 euro
60 minutes x 16 weeks: 789 euro
Included in the fees are concerts, parent/teacher meetings and group playing
Studying towards exams can prove an excellent focus for students. Many adults and children take this option as they feel it gives them a goal to work towards. It is a positive experience and good to get feedback from another source other than your own music teacher. We follow all of the exam boards – mostly the RIAM, ABRSM and Junior and Leaving Cert practicals. Trinity and Rockschool are also possible.
