Online Piano Lessons

The Piano Academy of Ireland is a special place- it is the only school of piano in Ireland and it welcomes students of all ages, levels, and abilities! Many adult beginners may be hesitant to try learning the piano, thinking they cannot do it, but at the Piano Academy of Ireland, we listen to our students' needs and those who give it a try quickly realize that they can succeed! This is a great confidence booster for people, especially adults who may not have had the chance to play the piano otherwise.

ages 3 - 8 years

According to Rhona Gouldson, Principal Director of the Piano Academy of Ireland, the best way to begin learning a musical instrument is to start as young as possible, having fun with music through singing and movement. This helps to develop the "ear" and a love for music, which leads to unconscious learning. At PAI, we provide this type of environment for children to study piano.
