Piano Lessons with Wizards, Witches, Zombies and Ghosts

Halloween Piano Lessons with Wizards, Witches, Zombies and Ghosts
It is a wonderful time to have fun.

We are having lots of fun here in Dublin, Ireland and you are welcome to join us!
In fact, we have lots of fun all year ’round… playing the piano.

Woo-hoo! We cast positive spells on our young piano students encouraging them to make progress in music. This usually works well, but even if it does not work the odd time, we are sure that we help keep the dark side away! You see, people who play music are usually confident, proud, happy and well-adjusted and these wonderful qualities frighten the witches, zombies and ghouls and keep them away throughout the year. Isn’t that a good thing?

If you would like to arrange piano lessons for your children, you can call us by phone, send us an email or use the forms on our website! We have classes starting soon in North Dublin City near DCU. You can choose from social group lessons with students of similar age or from one-to-one lessons if you are especially serious about your commitment. Our classes are all facilitated by our resident wizard who is highly qualified and has many years experience in music education.

Our wizard gets results!

Spooky Musicians Play Piano in the Afterlife: Regret not learning earlier.

Piano Lessons Dublin with Wizards, Spells and Musicality

Spooky Musicians advise: “Learn piano when you are young and still have flesh on your bones”

Performing music enriches your life. The greatest benefit goes to those who start at the earliest. Do not leave it so late that you will regret it in your afterlife. Our friends in the photo here practise to the bone everyday and still nobody can really hear them, most of the time. Please be wise enough to start at a young age when you still have flesh on your bones.

Spooky Musicians Exercise to Keep Bones in Condition During Piano Practise

These spooky guests have made themselves at home in our music room for Halloween. To be honest we don’t hear too much music from them, however we do hear their bones rattling — at times it gets too much. Blue-Jay, our child-friendly mascot who loves music, is a little bewildered and is hiding behind the curtains. This morning, the spooky musicians were telling us how they limber up – they say it is a very good idea to do some stretching exercises before starting long piano practise sessions. They also do these exercises in the middle of practising so that they get a chance to move around every hour or so. Here you can peep at a video of some of the exercises they like to do.

We heard the Spooky Musicians this morning saying they really love our piano and that it is a pity they could not stay all year round to have the use of it. It seems they are only here for this week and will leave after Halloween. It is good timing that we have a mid-term break while they are here! Hopefully we will be back to normal next week!

We need lots of piano students to use the piano so there is no space for the Spooky Musicians.

Music Worth Sharing with the Young

Music School Dublin | Music Lessons Dublin | Piano Lessons Dublin

Music is like language: Young children become fluent easily.

Just thinking:

Great music deserves our attention and is worth sharing with the young.

It requires some time for engagement, preferably without doing other activities.
Where better to do this than in school classrooms?

Time spent listening to great music and listening to great stories being read aloud are important for the engagement opportunities and for how they help us think and relate beyond the self. These activities help us grow and develop as individuals in ways that may not be examined, but yet promote development and self-knowledge.
How many teachers devote even an hour of class time each week to such a passive activity nowadays?

Thoughts on Music Education


As a starting position…
“… the notion that you can educate a child musically by any other means whatsoever except that of having beautiful music finely performed within its hearing, is a notion which I feel constrained to denounce.”
(George Bernard Shaw)


Now, read the quotation again while you mentally delete the word ‘musically’ and see if you agree with that sentiment.

As a starting position, we do.
Music listening belongs in the classroom.

St. Patrick’s Day Dance Tune

St. Patrick’s Day Dance Tune

“Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”

is the greeting you hear as one person greets another on the roads of Ireland at this time of year.

St Patrick is the patron saint of both Ireland and Nigeria.

He was a bishop who is credited with introducing Christianity to Ireland, and with banishing snakes, lizards and serpents out of Ireland.


He is also famous for using the shamrock plant to demonstrate the idea of the Blessed Trinity as being three divine persons in one God,
or as three leaves on one stem. Because of this, the green shamrock is a symbol associated with St Patrick, St Patrick’s Day and Ireland.

Since the shamrock is green and a grass plant like clover, it is also associated with abundance and good fortune.

Each year on the 17th of March, the Irish people celebrate their national day with parades in many villages, towns and cities all over Ireland.

As the Irish people are spread throughout the world, there are many celebratory parades organised in cities such as Boston, New York, Budapest, Moscow, Tokyo and many others.

The Irish Dance Tune: St Patrick’s Day

There is also a well-known Irish dance tune titled St Patrick’s Day. The dance is a long dance or a set dance. This infers that there is a recognised choreography associated with this tune. All Irish dancers should do similar steps to this music, allowing for subtle differences due to regional styles and embellishments.

The tune has two sections. The first is 8 bars long and the second is 14 bars long. The 14 bars is unusual as one might expect 16 bars.

The sections are repeated to afford dancers to perform the steps, firstly, leading on the right foot and then, secondly, repeating the steps leading on the left foot.

While musicians will play the tune with some variation and ornamentation, the outline is presented in music notation below.

With sincere wishes for a Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all at Playright Music Ltd.

How important are music lessons in childhood?

Learning the piano as a child could cause a lasting improvement in how our brains respond to sound and speech in older age.

Music Lessons Dublin

Music is like language: Young children become fluent easily.

Music lessons help development and promote health in older age.

Research suggests there are benefits noticed in brain function, memory and reaction times in a sample of older people where those who had music lessons as a child scored better in tests than those who did not have music lessons as a child. The research outcomes suggest music education is important in childhood for both development and improved health prospects in older age.

More information is available from this article on the website of the Telegraph, UK.

 Music Lessons for children are available from Playright Music Ltd. in Glasnevin, Dublin

Beginner, intermediate and advanced levels are all welcome.
