About the School
Keys & Strings School of Music was established in Rush North County Dublin in January 2016 by Karolina and Gerry Hogan. This was closely followed by the opening of a second school in Skerries in October 2016.
We provide comprehensive music education to children and adults, offering tuition in piano, violin, viola, cello, guitar, ukulele, drums, tin whistle, Irish traditional flute, saxophone, singing, pre-instrumental classes and music theory. Our aim is to deliver the highest possible quality of music education in a fun, friendly and enthusiastic environment whilst developing musicianship and a love of music by offering a high standard of tuition and innovative approaches to music education.
All Keys & Strings teachers are qualified to third level in music and are Garda vetted. Our students consistently achieve excellent results in the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Associated Board of the Royal School of Music and Registry of Guitar Tutors at London College of Music exams as well as many competitions such as Feis Ceoil. We also give all students the opportunity to take part in the school’s concerts, Christmas street fares, music festivals and the St Patrick’s parade.
Karolina and Keys & Strings teachers regularly participate in the Kodaly Society of Music and the Royal Irish Academy training courses. We all share a genuine love and passion for music which we are eager to pass on to our students.
