There has been a great feedback to the recent keys skills workshop which was conducted by the Royal Irish Academy of music in the Holland Pianos Carlow Showrooms on September 21st.
Mainly aimed to help teachers prepare for the 2015- 2018 sylabus, this workshop explored various teaching methods, and offered solutions to common problems while also providing tips on such things as musicality, expressiveness, scales and advice on how to approach aural tests.
The event was attended by music teachers and students from across Leinster and beyond.
The workshop was given by Mr Anthony Byrne who provided a great insight into all aspects of the current curriculum through all grades but with a particular emphasis on the higher grades.
Holland pianos are delighted to play our part in such wonderful events and look forward to hosting many such events in the future.
A quick reminder that dates the Royal Irish Academy exams for the autumn will be announced soon, and we will provide any updates as soon as we have confirmation of these.
Best wishes to all who are sitting exams at this time.
