Online Piano Lessons

The Piano Academy of Ireland is unique- it is Ireland's only School of Piano, and it does not discriminate between ages levels or abilities! While many adult beginners may shy away from learning the piano, believing that they "couldn’t possibly do it!", here at the Piano Academy of Ireland, we actually listen to the student’s needs, and those who try it out soon realise that they can do it! This is a wonderful confidence booster for people, especially for the adults who might not otherwise have the opportunity to play!

The best way to start learning a musical instrument is to start as early as possible, having fun exploring music through singing & movement while at the same time developing the all-important ‘ear’ and a love of music. “It is all about unconscious learning, and at a more appropriate age, the actual symbols are then introduced,” says Rhona Gouldson, Principal Director of the Piano Academy of Ireland. At the Piano Academy of Ireland (PAI) they offer exactly this environment for your child to study piano.
