A relatively new kid on the block which was founded in 2013 with the dual mission of bringing great piano music to Dublin audiences and to assist the next generation of pianists with workshops and masterclasses.
The classes are limited to just 16 young pianists and places are coveted, so these are students of high ability and with the talent to become professionals. For audiences, the performances are a unique opportunity to hear not just highly acclaimed established artists but also those just starting out on their career.
As well as individual performances there are concerts featuring students and faculty together, including a family concert which kids will really enjoy.
The masterclasses too are open to the public and give those who go along an amazing insight into the amount of hard work and dedication that goes in to honing a performance.
