Exams and Fees
At Play Piano we prepare students to sit our own in house exams and external exams operated by the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Play Piano practical exams may be conducted on the students own in person lesson or recorded and uploaded to our website. A student will self enter for an RIAM exam and these take place three times yearly. If you have any questions please ask you teacher or contact the office.
