New faces at TMI

The winter term got off to a great start three weeks ago. We were delighted to welcome two new teachers on board. Jennifer Tully will join Filipa and Lewis in teaching Voice at The Music Institute and Alison Reynolds will join Michael and Lewis in teaching piano.  Both Jen and Alison are very accomplished musicians and teachers and we are delighted to have them on board. Keep an eye on our teacher page and on facebook for a full rundown of these ladies credentials.

All the best,
Michael and teachers at TMI



Junior & Leaving Cert. Music Grinds

With exam season fast approaching we have had a number of enquiries about out music grinds. We offer individual tuition covering all aspects of the syllabus (performing, composing, listening). Lessons are tailored to the student and results focused.

This year we will also offer summer preparatory course for third, fourth and fifth year students. These two day courses are ideal for students who want to improve their skills ahead of term and gain a solid understanding of the syllabus. The courses will include group lessons in listening and composing and individual performance tuition. Limited places, 10% discount offered to current students of TMI and students who subsequently enrol in instrument tuition for the school year.

Phone or email for more details.

Welcome to the first news update from The Music Institute, Dublin!

We are delighted with all the new followers on Facebook and all of the visitors to our website. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at 135 Rathmines Road Upper!

We thought that since this is our first newsletter it would be a good time to introduce ourselves and the school properly.

Our proprietor Michael MacLennan is an experienced teacher and holds an Honours B.Mus from the Royal College of Music in London. In addition to teaching he continues to write and perform his own music and collaborate with some of Irelands best known musicians, many of whom will hold exclusive workshops throughout the year at The Music Institute – More on that in upcoming newsletters!

In opening The Music Institute, we hope to provide a creative space where musicians of all levels will want to come and develop their skills. We provide lessons for all ages, abilities and ambitions.

Our commitment to each and every student is to deliver individual, tailor-made lessons in a supportive, inspiring and creative environment. Michael has had great success with this approach to teaching. His students have excelled at the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) and Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM) exams, others have progressed to third level music education. Equally, the students who want to pursue music as a pastime have been inspired by Michael’s love of music.

Checkout our Facebook page in the coming weeks. We will be announcing some special offers on our page. Keep your eyes peeled for an exclusive giveaway too!
