The toe-tapping spirited music of Ireland comes alive in the home of the founders of the Murphy Roche School of Irish Music. The atmosphere is very welcoming and you feel a sense of community while learning all aspects of the Irish music culture. The students learn how to play by ear by watching videos on their website and by recording their teacher playing the tune or technique introduced during the lesson and practicing with it throughout the week. The students also reinforce their learning by teaching it their fellow student(s). My eight-year-old daughter has been attending for the past year and a half and has this to share with you...'I love playing music with my friends and learning new tunes - reels, jigs, slip jigs and polkas - every Saturday. I also love that I've learned how to sing a few songs in Gaelic.Jul 23, 2015
lessons are individual for half an hour each, but most students come and spend all day playing music and having fun. The Chole's are more than instructors to the kids, they become part of there family. My child started lessons at the age of 4 and after 7 years still can't wait to get to lessons every saturday!!Jul 27, 2015
Great way to introduce my 3rd generation grandchildren to our Irish heritiage. Introductory complimentary lesson; Adjustable weekly scheduling; Kids of all ages meeting, learning Irish tunes and eventually performing together at local venues; convenience of paying weekly by the lesson; Very positive but accountable teaching style!Jul 24, 2015
Very unique music school that offers a lot of opportunities to perform the Irish music through weekly sessions and variety of concerts. Very warm atmosphere. My daughter loves the interaction with other young musicians during her weekly lessons.Aug 4, 2015
I have been taking lessons here for three years and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. The teachers are amazingly talented and the students supportive and encouraging.Jul 22, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, our lessons are $20 per half hour per lesson (some kids take multiple instruments). Students can stay all day, if they wish and have lunch (provided). There is no additional charge for this.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We ask families to come and observe. We are not your typical music school. We'll tell you all about our program to see if it will work for you. Each child receives a private lesson, one on one with a teacher each week but can stay as long as desired to work with teaching assistants and hone their craft.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Masters degree in education and a world title in Irish music.
