Services for Private Teachers

Teachers who provide music tuition privately cater for many students. In many cases, this is the student’s first formal encounter with music education in Ireland. The importance of your role in music education in Ireland is crucial. Despite this, it is often a lonely occupation, as you may not have any colleagues with whom to discuss ideas or share stories. Although so much can be accessed online and achieved through social media, it is not quite the same as face-to-face interaction. Access to resources may also prove challenging. Can you consult the latest theories in music education and content that will help you in your lessons? Are you able to continue your own professional development? Music Literacy Ireland was founded with you as practitioner in mind. Why not sign up to MLI’s mailing list to keep informed about workshops that are coming near you or contact MLI by phone if you would prefer information in the post.

MLI offers two types of workshops: general workshops and tailor-made workshops. General workshops will be offered at different levels. All information is listed in advance with the fee so you know what to expect and can decide if it suits your needs. Tailor-made workshops are designed around your needs. These workshops are subject to a minimum number of people (see FAQs). In this case, perhaps you and teachers in your locality would be interested in coming together.
In recent months, we have taken your requests and feedback on board and have designed and expanded our general workshops to suit your needs.
Contact MLI if you are interested in learning more.
