Course Introduction

RIAM Adult Beginner Classical Piano Lessons are suitable for absolute beginners. This 10-week evening course offers adults the opportunity to develop Classical piano skills from scratch with some of Ireland's leading teachers.

Taught through small group classes, this intensive immersion in Classical piano will help beginners to assimilate foundation skills and techniques in a collaborative and encouraging environment, focussing on reading notation, hand position, scales and arpeggios and elementary improvisation.

A RIAM tutor book will be provided which will include duets with fellow classmates and the tutor.

The final class will see participants making their Classical Piano concert debut to an invited audience of friends and family, and will be ready to take their first steps towards RIAM Exam Grades / GOAL Performances.

Motivated students will be invited to sign up for Beginner Piano Classes (Part 2) in the Spring/Summer term.

There are no mandatory exams or assessments with Adult Division group lessons, but can be agreed with your tutor through the duration of your course.

Group classes can look forward to a faculty expert leading their classes, as well as a formative learning environment through peer-to-peer learning. Class concerts and recordings will present fun and motivational challenges for you and your study colleagues.

Join like-minded adult learners today in exploring your passion for music performance, no matter what level or experience you have.


Students must be 18+
