For Advanced Students

Piano lessons offered to advanced piano students in Dublin

Individual or one-to-one piano lessons are offered to intermediate and advanced pianists who are serious about making progress. Pianists from grade 6 international standard (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, or similar) and higher, who may be preparing for higher grade exams, senior cert, external diploma, graduate or post-graduate performance or public performance should have a piano lesson of at least one hour per week. Some students, perhaps spending some years practising full-time, may require two 90 mins piano lessons per week. If you fit the above categories and wish to arrange piano lessons, please contact us to arrange a meeting. You should bring your current repertoire and be willing to perform one or two pieces. At the meeting we would discuss your short-term and longer-term goals, and what coaching plan would be best suited to help you make progress. You may use the Contact Us tab at the edge of the page.

Piano Lessons for Advanced Students

Be a Performing Artist!

In the past we have helped students prepare for all performance examinations up to professional diploma level and academic post-graduate (Masters) performances. Several of our past students are working as professional musicians. We endeavour to bring about performances that are technically sound, feature appropriate style, with an artistic expressiveness that is unique, i.e. you! Your playing should be informed, have conviction and yet be tempered with your own spirit and personality. Always, your playing should express your enjoyment of engaging in musical performance. In addition to preparing scales, ear tests, sight-reading, quick studies, our coaching can help you with technique, tone quality, balance, phrase shaping, style, interpretation, memory, performance deportment and staging, repertoireprogramming and programme notes. If you are interested in this, use the Contact Us tab at the edge of the page.

Career in Music

If you are on your way to a career in music, you may aspire to being a concert pianist. Only a small number of music students will ever make a living as an A list concert artist who performs on the international circuit. If you do not make it to the international stage, you may be happy to carve out a solid reputation in the national context. Apart from being a soloist, there are other career possibilities that require a high standard of piano mastery, such as accompanist, repetiteur, orchestral pianist, chamber music pianist, piano teacher. There are also related opportunities in music departments in TV, Radio, artist management and concert programming where high standards in performance and musical literacy may influence your success.

If you have an exceptional talent, you have a moral duty to develop your talent with diligence and discipline. Instrumental practise is best done during the younger years. Remember, most people who are working as professional musicians started their professional training as a child!

We welcome discussing this further during our first meeting.

We Create, Produce & Record

Our recording studio offers the service of audio recording production for advertising, education, media, music, and corporate training. We can record individual instrumentalists (e.g. solo piano) and chamber music groups with open microphones. Larger productions are catered for in our digital studio where sampled instruments are used. Realistic orchestrations and arrangements of commercial (rock and pop) music, backing tracks for singers, performance tracks for live recital performances are typical of the projects we do. We have facilities to combine acoustic and digital modes when that is required.

The types of audio recording production work we do suits the following scenarios:

Music and Media

  • Solo piano performances for education, examinations and aural tests
  • Theme music for Stage, Television, Radio, Computer Games — Composer talents available
  • Part-production, building out arrangements with strings, woodwind, brass or synth sounds
  • Ident music for TV and Radio stations
  • Creation of Jingles for advertising
  • Learning tracks for choirs
  • Vocal, Instrumental, Digital Synthesis talent available.

Corporate Production

  • Voice-over narration for commercial advertisements, broadcasts and in-house training: Local or neutral vocal talent available
  • Ident tunes and sounds for companies – attention calls for announcements etc.
  • Sound content for corporate training requirements
  • Sound productions for your unique, bespoke projects
  • Sound effects (FX) for video and computer games
  • Video and Audio podcasts – media for the web

An unusual project we have worked on recently was creating sounds of the rain forests that followed a narrative that was timed with a walk-around exhibition of photographs, information posters, and samples of wood and other artefacts from the rain forests. For this we had to source the sounds of animals and nature and compile them into a timeline to meet the requirements of the client’s storyboard.

Regular projects we do involve recording many short pieces for education – such as are published on audio CDs or websites to accompany music text books.


Our audio recording and production services, studio time, editing, mixing and finishing are subject to charges depending on time and resources required for each particular project. Since some projects consist of many short pieces delivered in hundreds of files and others of one large piece in one file, we price each project separately. Please ask for a quotation.

Note: we do not have facilities that are suited to short-term renting for bands.

Let us know about your project!

Whether your requirements are musical or industrial, we will be interested to hear about your project and discuss it with you. If it is within our comfort zone we would be delighted to work with you or your company. If it is far out-of-field from what we usually do, we will try our best to recommend someone who can meet your challenge better than ourselves.

Our Team

We have a skilled team of graduates and post-graduates who will be pleased to work on your project. Our experienced specialists have knowledge of music composition, sound creation, production techniques including recording, mixing and finishing. We can create the media you wish to duplicate, publish or integrate in your mixed media project. Our team includes performers of several instruments to professional standard and university graduates with higher degrees in music and music technology.

Individual Piano Lessons Dublin for talented young musicians

Are you passed the beginner stage and interested in making further progress as a pianist?

Would you like to play piano more fluently and expressively?


Music Lessons Dublin

Individual piano lessons are for those who are committed and wish to work intensively. Our private piano lessons aim to develop your piano playing so you will become competent as an interpreter and convincing as a performing artist. We pinpoint your weaknesses and help you to address any issues that are holding you back. We work on widening your repertoire and learning new works while encouraging older works to be memorised and coloured with poetic expressiveness that is appropriate to the composer, period and context. If you are not quite ready to shine, we will develop the basics such as posture, musical knowledge, theory, sight-reading skills, rhythmic awareness, form and analysis, and other skills related to being a fully-formed pianist. We will also develop technical issues such as fingering, dexterity, strength and relaxation. We will choose a repertoire that is within your reach, that offers you the chance to play fluently and benefit from the enjoyment this brings.

About Graded Piano Exams

We will prepare you for piano examinations, but only if doing so is appropriate to your musical development. Preparing for examinations alone is not a complete or healthy way to become a musician. There is so much more to cover than what the examinations are concerned with. Further development in musical understanding, repertoire, history, style, technique and performance is required between each examination than is generally appreciated. Passing an exam does not mean you are ready to sit the next one, unless you build your knowledge, skill and stamina to such a point that you are enabled to prepare for the next exam in one term. If your preparation takes a year, you are wasting your time – valuable time that you should be using to grow as a musician.

Musical development is more important than preparing for an exam. When you are ready, devoting one term to preparing for an exam is a good way to prove that you have reached certain targets, that you claim to be a fully-formed musician at the level of the examination and you wish a professional examiner to verify this. The examiner can only mark and comment on your performance on the day – an examiner has no idea that you prepared for the exam in a few weeks with ease or that your preparation was a mammoth struggle of two years! The examiner usually has no idea about the quality and breadth of your musical education beyond meeting the requirements of one exam. Please consider the relevance of this and how it relates to your overall musical development, personally. While examinations are good milestones to achieve when used appropriately, the best assessment of musical development is self-assessment tempered with the assessment of a good teacher who monitors your continuing development over time.

Individual/Private Piano Classes are available to committed students from age 4 to 104!

Students from age 4 to about the teenage years should be accompanied by an adult. The parents of young children are expected to be active observers in the lessons, who acquire knowledge about supporting and encouraging development between the lessons. Familial support is very helpful as an aid to making progress. Since the student meets the teacher once or twice each week, it is important that responsibility for practising lies with parents! This is the case until the student reaches certain stages of maturity and independence when old enough to take on responsibility for practising, even when ‘not in the mood’ or fighting against competing interests.

This consolidates the course content for each student while developing self confidence and self awareness. The classes promote social development as well as musical development.
