Information about Ethne

Music is an intrinsic part of one’s education and personal development; everyone has the potential to explore and enjoy Music – as a subject, hobby, or career. As a teacher, it is my joy to guide the student to become enthusiastic about the world of music - to play, create, analyse and to respond.
I have taught both in both primary and secondary schools in Ireland, England, and Zambia, and I have taught practical Music at a Yamaha Music School in Australia.
I help students gain a clear understanding of how Music works and teach them how to apply their knowledge when appraising, performing, composing as well as when answering exam questions & completing coursework. With a 100% pass rate at GCSE, A Level, practical and music theory examinations (over 25 years), I am confident in stating that when the teacher learns how an individual learns, progress and achievement will be the reward.

5/5 Rating

Ethne has been very proactive from the first lesson. She has a very nice approach and my daughter felt very relaxed with her and her confidence in her GCSE music revision has much improved with only the first few lessons. Ethne has adapted very well to my daughter`s needs and she is very flexible to work around her timetable to accommodate us. I would have no hesitation to recommend Ethne. Thank you

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your positive and constructive feedback. My aim is to put the student`s needs in the centre of the learning, and flexibility allows this to be achieved effectively. Your daughter has been crystal clear about the areas that require attention each week. I would encourage all students to take this level of responsibility for their learning.
