As a piano teacher and RIAM examiner, I am deeply immersed in the instrumental education world in Ireland, and I believe that attending conferences like the annual RIAM Teaching and Learning Network conference is vital to help you grow as a teacher, and in turn your students will become even better musicians.

It's June, so it's conference time again!

The 4th Annual RIAM Teaching Network Conference will take place on the 29 and 30 June 2017 in the Royal Irish Academy of Music. This year, the conference will focus on new approaches and resources available to teachers, and on the importance of working with the needs of each individual student. The closing address will be given, once again, by our Director, Deborah Kelleher, where she will reflect on the conference and the necessary skills of the 21st century music teacher.

Appreciating Music RIAM style

Written by

I gave my first music appreciation classes 15 years ago, in 2002. The series was called ‘Bravo: An appreciation of music through the ages’. I was in the RIAM only a year or two and was the principal music history teacher, so was the obvious choice. Ambitiously, I decided to tell the entire history of music from 400 BC to 2002 in 10 weeks, (though I must admit the first week covered about 2,000 years in one go!)
