Piano and Keyboard
We offer piano lessons to students from age 6 and at all levels.

There's the option to take piano exams with the Royal Irish Academy of Music and Rockschool, depending on what the student prefers. There are 3 exam sessions per academic year so the student applies for the exam when they are ready.
The key areas that are taught in piano lessons include:

At Meath Music Academy we know that everyone’s singing goals are different and that’s why we provide personalised vocal coaching for all ages and levels.

Depending on your experience, a typical lesson will incorporate: warming up the voice, a series of technique-orientated exercises based on your vocal needs and applying this to song.
We will also be developing your musical ear, making sure you are pitching correctly during the scales and song and making sure that your voice is working towards achieving vocal balance.
