    Traditional Irish music taught in the traditional way. It's more like a family than a school. Open, friendly, and lots of fun. Great teachers.

About this pro

We teach each child in the way that helps them to play music well and soon. That's what kids and parents want: music, enjoyment. We are careful to ensure good muscle development and musical virtuosity in kids but we do it in a way that makes them eager to practice and perform. We have been very lucky to have worked with some fabulous kids over the years. We've been able to travel with them to perform and compete on the world stage. Parents are often amazed that their child has what it takes to become a world class musician. It takes a solid teaching program, caring teachers and kids who are engaged. Talent is overrated, as the book of the same title says. Kids who work hard go far. If a child just wants to have fun playing music, we're on board with that, as well.

    Q & A

    • 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.
