After working with Dan for a couple of months, I’ve begun playing the guitar better than I ever would have expected. His patience, step-by-step process and knowledge of music not only had me playing popular songs after a couple of weeks, but gave me a greater understanding of how the whole guitar itself works. Dan is always available to help out and answer any questions, and I look forward to each session every week. Google review 5 stars.

Mairead O Donoghue is a kind and inspirational piano teacher. She’s encouraged my daughter to develop  her own musical interests alongside exam preparation. She also makes time for fun and interesting activities, notably composition competitions and charity CDs. Highly recommend. 5 stars.

Dan taught my 2 kids guitar for a number of years , he has an amazing teaching technique, a lot of patience, and most importantly he took an interest in my kids music interests and devised the lessons around songs that they wanted to learn which kept them motivated to practice and learn the guitar. I would highly recommend Dan. 5 stars

Eamon Connery, Kilfinan - (Guitar) Facebook Review

Dan is a great teacher. He gave clear, easy to follow instructions. He made learning the guitar very enjoyable. He was very accommodating, offering lessons in person and via Skype. For anyone short on time this is a great option. I would highly recommend him. 5 stars

Mairead is an excellent piano teacher and I would recommend her to anyone. My son started off as an absolute beginner at 7 years old and is now, 6 years later, studying for his Grade 3 exam. The one to one lessons build up confidence and skill at the student’s own pace. Mairead is patient & encouraging, reassuring the student at every lesson. 5 stars.

Yes! We have taught loads of guitar and piano students who have never played an instrument before. We will take you through everything you need to know to play like your music heroes! You won’t stay a beginner for long.

For guitar and bass guitar we generally start at 9 years old and for piano we start at about 6 years old. However we have made exceptions in the past.

We are located in Glanworth Fermoy County Cork Ireland. You can see the precise location of our teaching studio by clicking here.

Not at all, I have guitars here that you are more than welcome to use for the first lesson! I can then give you a €5 voucher for a guitar purchase in Tom Baylors music shop in fermoy.

I’m asked this question so much I created a separate webpage to help you. Click here for details.
