With our violin lessons for primary schools, pupils are immediately immersed into the music-making process. This month, the 3rd class boys in St. Michael’s Primary School have been working on pieces for the Cara Awards with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. This year is our third consecutive year delivering classroom music programmes in St. Michael’s Primary School. We are delighted to be back teaching the talented young musicians for another year of fun-filled music education.


RIAM Cara Awards

Cara, meaning friend as Gaeilge, gives students the opportunity to play for a RIAM examiner, along with three of their friends. Each student must play a group piece and a solo piece. The boys are very excited about achieving the Award, which will take place in May. Starting this week, each student will borrow a school violin to facilitate their practice at home.

The boys have been so enthusiastic and dedicating to their violin lessons. As they improve on their bowing skills, musicality and confidence week-on-week, we’re sure the boys will give their best performance at the Cara Awards!


Violin in the Classroom

‘Violin in the Classroom’ gives students a sense of achievement by developing their technical and musical abilities as violinists. As music experts, we have found that learning in a group environment radically develops students’ musical awareness, self-esteem and confidence as musicians and creative thinkers.
