I'm a music teacher myself and I'd recommend Dublin School of Music. I recently started taking lessons with Darren Loughran and find him to be an excellent teacher. The prices are fair and there's a friendly atmosphere to the place. Five stars. More...

Services

At Dublin School of Music, we have an impressive Vocal Department, with teachers from many different genres and musical backgrounds, all with a solid background in vocal pedagogy and vocal health/development.
Voice lessons are catered to the individual student, encouraging a strong foundation in vocal technique, performance practice and establishing a varied and appropriate repertoire list.

Science has shown that, with 88 keys and two hands to be mastered all at once, a pianist’s brain capacity is entirely unique.

Those who learn piano also develop skills in problem solving, methodical thinking, language, memory, spontaneity, decision making and social behaviour. Concentration becomes easier and focus is more resolute.

All of this develops as the player explores their creativity, communication, sensitivity, and imagination. Pretty cool, eh?

Guitar lessons for any level of experience, from beginner to advanced. As we 'tailor' each and every course to meet the needs of each individual student, our guitar lessons are taught on an exclusively one-to-one basis.
We cater for all styles, from classical to pop, from jazz to heavy metal.
The lessons emphasise a sound musical foundation, learning to read music, understand music theory and harmony and acquiring the techniques associated with guitar performance.

The violin is arguably the most beautiful and emotive instruments ever created. Its lyrical quality and gloriously sweet tone relates it closely to the human voice, enabling the violinist to unlock an extreme range of colours and emotions.
As a new violinist you will gain instant satisfaction through improved concentration, memory and communication. The skills children gain from learning the violin pave the way for success in many other aspects of life, not just a rich musical education.

Over the last few years the ukulele has become more and more popular.
There are a few reasons for this: the ukulele is cheap (we sell them from €34.95) and portable, so you can take it nearly everywhere.
It's also easy enough to learn - relative to many other instruments - which makes the ukulele an ideal instrument for kids (especially as an introduction to string instruments for those a little young to start on guitar).
Most of all, though, the best reason for the popularity of the ukulele is that it's so much fun!
Why not book now for a course of lessons with one of our experienced tutors and discover for yourself just how much fun this little instrument is?!

The flute is one of the most versatile and enjoyable instruments to play. Whether you want to rock out with a band, play exciting jazz tunes, or tap into centuries of classical music, flute is the ideal instrument.
Flute is a standard instrument in most bands and orchestras. Learning to play will lead to fantastic opportunities to join groups and make friends.

It's quite straightforward to get a sound from a flute early on, and if you can blow across a bottle and get a sound then you can get a note from the flute. Beginners can progress quite rapidly and many end up doing their first graded exams by the end of the first year.

Here at the Dublin School of Music, we teach the classical (silver) flute. Many of the techniques you will learn can also later be applied to other types of flute such as the Irish traditional wooden flute or Chinese flutes. There is also very strong similarites with the playing technique of other woodwind instruments such as saxophone or oboe. In fact many professional musicians double on both flute and saxophone because of their similarities.

One of the advantages of the flute is that the notes are the same as on the recorder. Many people start off playing the recorder in school, so the skills learned can be transferred on to the flute.
The instrument itself is fairly cheap to buy. You can get good quality beginner flutes second hand.
In the first few weeks of lessons, you will learn how to produce a tone and play enough notes to create a tune. Alongside learning the instrument, you will be taught how to read notes from sheet music.

Beginners do not need to have their own drum kit to start lessons!

John Coltrane, Kenny G, Félim Gormley and Lisa Simpson! All of these wonderful people have one thing in common… The Saxophone! Created to be the bridge between the powerful brass instruments and the vocal like quality of woodwind instruments, the saxophone is wonderfully versatile, being used from jazz to classical to rock music!

An instrument that can fit in your back pocket! What more could you want?!
The tin whistle and recorder are great instruments for beginners and advanced players alike. Although they look similar the two instruments are quite different and are played in their own unique way.
Recorder: The recorder was used mostly in the Baroque and Renaissance periods of music but has recently been used by bands like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin in their albums and live performances.
A slightly lower sound than the tin whistle, the recorder is known to be a great starter instrument for little musicians!

Dublin School of Music offers you one and a half hours of class per week in preparation for the Leaving Certificate Course.
The fee for each year is €495, payable in four equal instalments. The term is of 29 tuition weeks, from the start of September till the end of May.

Our brand new Junior Music Course is the perfect way to develop the entire range of musical skills you will need as you go forward on your journey as a junior musician.
The course is packed with fun activities and games as we discover rhythm and beat, singing through solfa, recognising pitches and musical styles, and even getting a chance to try out some of the instruments available at Dublin School of Music!

The course also encourages our maestros to explore the analysis of music through listening to orchestral works and a variety of musical styles- we may have the next jazz/rock/classical stars in our midst!
Amongst all the fun, the course will offer a strong groundwork in music theory. It is the perfect addition to your instrumental lesson training or the perfect introduction to the world of music as you decide which instrument is best for you!

"Local Vocals" - Terenure's Children's Choir

For school kids Aged 7 - 13

We're absolutely delighted to announce the launch of our new Children's' Choir (Local Vocals). A choir is a brilliant way for children to strengthen their singing voices, improve their musical ear and make friends!
“Local Vocals” will be lead by our singing teacher Heather Lawrie and will be a completely non-competitive choir.
This choir’s sole purpose is to have fun while learning how to sing and how to read and learn music. The choir will be held every Tuesday from 4:30pm - 5:30pm, starting the 8th of October 2019.
We have loads of great tunes lined up like;

- This is Me from The Greatest Showman
- Beautiful People - Ed Sheeran
- Roar - Katy Perry
- Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves

If you think you may be interested in our fun new choir, how about popping in for a free tester? You can meet your choir leader as well as the others you will be sharing this awesome musical experience with!

For any Musician a strong foundation of music theory is a huge advantage when progressing in their instrument. But it needn’t be intimidating or a chore! Which is why we are launching a brand new Music Theory Course aimed at developing musical skills in an engaging way outside of the instrumental lesson.

These theory classes will develop skills such as reading notation, aural training and music analysis in a group setting. These group classes will be invaluable to those working towards graded exams, and indeed, to all of our developing musicians working to expand their musicianship outside their instrumental lesson!

Taking one of our theory courses is the perfect way to take some pressure off your instrumental lesson – now you can focus completely on your developing your instrumental skills without worrying about fitting in some theory. Our classes cater to all grades and are currently split as follows:

-Junior Theory: Beginner to Grade 2
-Intermediate Theory: Grade 3-5
-Senior Theory: Grade 5-8
