I have been involved in the music business for many years. At the age of eight I joined the Artane Boys Band, at 16 I discovered the guitar and began the next phase of my musical journey playing rock, pop and blues in various bands in Dublin. Looking for a further challenge I decided to study classical guitar in which I have earned both an Associated Board ABRSM diploma and a Licentiate diploma from Trinity College London.  I taught guitar, banjo, mandolin and music technology at Waltons New School Of Music in Dublin from 2003 to 2017 and also gave lessons at several primary schools. A recent collaboration with Music Literacy Ireland has produced a very successful online workshop for music notation software MuseScore. 


I learned so much.... The teacher was excellent with a wide knowledge of the field.
