Each student receives weekly individual instrumental tuition for 30/45/60 minutes. The progressive curriculum is designed to gradually develop a student's musical skills from the very first stages of starting to learn an instrument onwards. We deliver this through a mixture of individual and ensemble lessons incorporating Kodály ear-training, aural games, singing, improvisation, chamber music playing, creative musicianship, and theory training. At MMA, we place a strong emphasis on the importance of ear training from the very first lesson. Regular aural training cultivates a disciplined and musical ear, and helps to develop the ability both to listen and to hear perceptively. As a result, students can play more musically, play and sing in tune, memorise music, and sight-read more fluently.

 
 

children’s choir

We are delighted to welcome new members from both MMA and externally to join our popular Children’s choir under the creative directorship of Sarah King.  Choir rehearsals take place every Thursday evening during term and cost 30 euros for 10 weeks.

Fees are paid in full at the beginning of each term.

Singing is an essential activity for all musicians. The act of singing enhances the perception of pitch, phrasing and intonation, helping to develop the inner ear and improve sight-reading, not to mention how much fun it is making new friends and learning new songs across all musical genres. Our choirs perform at every concert during the academic year.

 
 

parents & practising

We recognise the highly valuable role which parents play in the success of your child’s positive musical journey, particularly by supporting and organising daily practice schedules at home. We encourage regular contact between parents and our teachers. We look forward to discussing your child's musical education, challenges, and progress at our Parent/Teacher meetings, held at the end of every term.
