Piano Lessons

The Piano (Pianoforte) invented in the 1700's is often referred to as the "Mother of all instruments" owing to its versatility and has become over time one of the most familiar musical instruments in the Western world and the most popular to learn to play. Whether you are 6 or 66 years of age learning to play the piano can be a very therapeutic, fulfilling and rewarding experience and will also help to keep your motor skills in good operational mode.


The lessons at Play Piano are generally conducted on a one to one basis and are 30 minutes in duration. Play Piano will design a course of learning specific to your needs and goals. We specialise in teaching the Graded Exams governed by the Royal Irish Academy of music (R.I.A.M.) which we encourage all our beginner students starting out to undertake. The exams are graded from elemetary level right up to Grade 8 level. The practical exams are held twice yearly on the Play Piano campus in mid May and Mid November. The graded exams system is a great way of keeping a student focused, progressing at an even pace, setting goals and striving towards new and greater musical achievements. 


  • All Ages accepted from 5 years upwards
  • All levels accepted beginners to advanced.
  • Student must have a keyboard / piano


At Play Piano the tuition year consists of 40 weeks duration and is divided into three terms. Please note that fees are charged by the term and not on a weekly basis. All fees must be cleared by the end of a term. See our school Terms and Fees section for more information.


All new potential students will be asked to attend for a consultation prior to enrolment. At the consultation the enquiring student will be informed of operational procedures at Play Piano and presented with an enrolment form. When this is completed and returned the students name will then be added to the current waiting list and contacted when a suitable time slot arises.

New students are enrolled on an 8 week probationary course with a cost of 180.00 euro which must be paid for in full in advance. Upon successful completion of this period the student will be enrolled as a full member of Play Piano.
