The River Nore Music Academy offers tuition to girls and boys all skill levels aged 5-18 years. Students come to us to develop their instrumental skills, as well as to prepare for grade examinations (Royal Irish Academy of Music-Dublin, and Leinster School of Music and Drama-Griffith College) if they wish.

Most kids take piano lessons because they are fun. However, little do they know that playing an instrument is a lot more than just a hobby. When you play the piano, your brain runs at full speed.

Kids who take regular piano lessons have amazing concentration skills. This is because a pianist must manage multiple things all at once. They must use both hands, pay attention to the notes, play the pedal, and most importantly, read music at the same time. Once you master your skills of splitting concentration at the instrument, you will notice that your multitasking skills have improved immensely. Before the child enrols in the piano subject course, it is necessary to pass an audition for rhythm and musicality. No prior knowledge is required.

This program offers tuition in a wide range of genres and styles, for students of all ages and skill levels. Whether you’re a child, teenager, adult or older person, learning guitar will help improve mental clarity and keep your mind sharp. You may not notice a change at first, but your mental clarity will gradually improve the more you practice.  Being able to pick up your guitar, play with your friends, perform a song or writing your own music are all great experiences.

When to start lessons depends on the child’s coordination and attention span – and sometimes hand size. It is best for children to start when they are around 10, 11 years old.


The bass guitar, electric bass or simply bass, is the lowest-pitched member of the guitar family. It is a plucked, string instrument similar in appearance and construction to an electric or acoustic guitar, but with a longer neck and scale length, and typically four to six strings .

Since the mid-1950s, the bass guitar has largely replaced the double bass in popular music.  If you’re a newbie to music, you might not even know the difference between bass and guitar.

In general, bass guitars are bigger than guitars, however, the guitar has more strings than the standard bass.

This program is offered to girls and boys between 9-18 years old. Learning a woodwind instrument and particularly the flute opens many doors for playing with jazz bands, ensembles, and orchestras. It allows students to learn the art of breath control, good posture and finger dexterity.
The flute is extremly versatile and will blend well with most instruments allowing you to make friends and play music together at ease! Whilst playing the flute, only one note can be played at a time which allows beginners to play great sounding songs very quickly.
When you master the flute, your ability to concentrate on beat and rhythm, music theory and tone ( note clarity and sound quality) will all improve.


The violin is the smallest and highest-pitched of the string instrument family.

Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres – they are most prominent in the Western classical tradition and in many varieties of folk music, however they are also frequently used in country music, jazz, and even rock music.

Violins come in many different sizes. Typically, students will start learning violin at a young age with a 1/32 or 1/16 size violin. As the student ages they will graduate up to a full-sized violin

The Viola is slightly larger than the Violin, see it as the Violin’s older brother or sister.
The Viola measures in at just over two feet and its strings are thicker than the Violin, meaning the Viola produces a richer and warmer sound.

You play the Viola the same way as you do the Violin, resting the instrument between your chin and shoulder.

Pressing down on the strings with your left hand changes the notes and pitch of the instrument and your right hand moves the bow or plucks the strings.
