GIVE THE GIFT OF MUSIC
We currently offer lessons and courses including piano, guitar, songwriting, music business, music performance and wellness in the music industry. Take a look at our available courses below and get in touch to discuss further or book your place.
Our one-to-one piano lessons are perfect for children and adults. The minimum age for children is 6. We first have a pre-arranged discussion to decide which pathway you prefer to take - either lessons focused on learning popular songs along with theory and music notation or if you prefer the path of lessons in full preparation for graded exams. We can also discuss whether a blended approach is more suitable.
We offer 2 lessons types weekly: 30-minute or 60-minute lessons. 30 minute is the standard lesson time. If a blended learning approach is adopted, 60-minute classes are spilt in two parts. One part focused on graded exam prep and the other part focused on learning contemporary songs and performance.
The duration of lessons depends on the age and level of the student and can be adjusted according to individual preferences.
Every lesson begins with some technical exercises such as scales and chords to develop correct techniques and in preparation for exams. The remainder of lessons then focus on examination pieces or the chosen contemporary songs if non-examination path is chosen. Students are encouraged to express their own interest in music and suggest tunes that they would like to learn.
Term 1 runs until 22nd December

TERMS OF ENROLMENT
Enrolment is by the term only.
Where a lesson is cancelled by the teacher, that lesson shall be refunded or replaced by the teacher.
Lessons missed or cancelled by the student, for any reason, are neither replaceable nor refundable, other than at the sole discretion of the teacher.
Where the student or teacher wishes to do so, enrolment may be ended at any time during the term, four weeks in advance.
DO I NEED A PIANO/KEYBOARD AT HOME FOR THE LESSONS?
Yes. Lessons take place at Dublin Music Factory premises but students need to have a piano or keyboard or guitar at home to undertake weekly practice and make significant progress.
If you have a piano, make sure it is tuned regularly. We can advise on basic maintenance and also recommend a piano tuner if needed.
In regards to guitarists, we can advise on maintenance and upkeep.
LESSONS DURING THE BANK HOLIDAYS OR MID-TERM BREAKS?
Each term is based on the School Calendar, so we don’t teach during the Bank Holidays, Christmas and Easter Holidays, Mid-term breaks, etc.
Monday students with lessons missed due to Bank Holidays have reduced term fees. The affected period in this calendar year is from January to June.
ADDITIONAL MATERIALS REQUIRED
Students preparing for Piano graded exams require an exam book. Books can be bought online and delivered to your address. Individual pieces can also be bought online and downloaded immediately. We are more than happy to help you with sourcing the right material.
Materials for guitar lessons, songwriting and other courses will be provided.
