We offer in-person duo/group piano / keyboard lessons in Celbridge, co. Kildare. Online lessons are also available for individuals who are at least of a late beginner level. For cost of lessons, go here.
What age and level do you teach?
My youngest student started when she was 3 years old. I have a few mature students in their 60s. I teach absolute beginners to grade 8.
Why take lessons at Celbridge Piano?
Lessons are enjoyable and culminate in a student concert for each term. You focus on playing the piano and making music instead of passing exams and note reading.
What will the pupil learn / teaching method?
The student will learn to play tunes and pieces from the very beginning. After being able to play good sounding pieces, they go on to learn to play the piano by ear on both hands. After that, they will learn to improvise i.e. creating tunes and pieces of their own. Eventually, they will learn to write down their tunes using musical notation and only then do they formally commence to “read notes” where the emphasis is on learning to read lead sheets and to create their own arrangements.
For young children, a parent/guardian will attend every lesson with the child and and learn along with the child.
For teenagers and adults, they are encouraged to undertake a project of their choice every term. Most students opt to learn their favourite piece/song.
I’m interested in online lessons
Online lessons are suited for learners who are at least of late beginner level (e.g. grade 2-3) and at least 12 years old. It is Celbridge Piano’s experience that teaching children or absolute/early beginners online is very challenging.
Where is Celbridge Piano located?
Celbridge Piano is located in Primrose Gate, Celbridge, co. Kildare for in-person students. Parking is available.
