Lesson Format

Piano lessons don’t need to be academic. Grade exams suit some and not others.

If you or your kids like the idea of the grade exams, the Royal Irish Academy Exam Board is highly recommended. The grades go from 1 to 8 as well as having introductory levels (elementary, preliminary and primary).

If you are aiming to achieve other goals, customised lesson plans will be constructed to help you achieve them.

Lessons take place at Galway Piano Studio where there is a grand piano and recording facilities.

For many students starting out, 30 minutes is a suitable lesson duration once a week. As students develop, 45 minute lessons, and 1 hour lessons are recommended.

Teaching Philosophy

Learning the piano isn’t easy. Learning the geography of the instrument, as well as becoming literate with the dots, has to be communicated with care, patience and charisma!

At Galway Piano Studio, the mission is to fulfill the ambition of each student individually while having fun!

Whether you are younger or older, starting out or concert standard, piano pedagogy assists in many more areas of our lives than meets the eye. It can improve your mental health, concentration, memory, problem solving skills and attention to detail; all of which lead to a happier and more fulfilled life. Not to mention how much fun it is to play for family and friends!
