  • Piano Lessons
    One-to-One Private Piano Tuition

    We find that one-to-one tuition is the best type of tuition to nurture the individual needs of a student as no two people are the same and each will learn in a different way.

  • #Sharp Kids ‘Musical Fun for Your Little One’
    #Sharp Kids Pre-Instrumental
    A fun and lively introduction to music, in preparation for the learning of the piano. Suitable for 3 to 6 year olds, this training will begin to develop beat, rhythm, pitch and aural awareness - laying good foundations for the future. Based around songs and musical games (taught sequentially) and led by Judit Mate, who is a dynamo and lots of fun, this is a wonderful introduction for your child who is not 'quite' ready to start the piano but wants to get started!

    Junior Cert Courses


    As Music is often a subject that is not offered in schools (or potentially clashes with another important subject), it is a great facility therefore, to offer Music to students outside of their own school environment. It can also be of great value as an extra subject for those already studying music, and many of them will find it easy to do really well in it, adding to those valuable points at the exam!

Musicianship Classes

It has always been our intention to offer a complete programme of musical training…a holistic approach to the learning of the piano, but something that has ultimately proved to be very challenging indeed within the time constraints of a weekly 30 or 45 minute lesson!

School is very well run.
Elizabeth Mc Cullagh, parent
There is a quiet air of efficiency about the Piano Academy of Ireland, with learning and personal endeavour (all levels) at the heart of things. Never stop learning…they say….and I know that at the end of the Academic year I will have covered a lot of new ground and be encouraged to continue.
Mark Duffy, adult student
I like the personal atmosphere of the School.

The school is very professional, always developing and improving, although already at a high standard.
