Grace and Emma love the Drama lessons. I can see the great improvement in their confidence when they are on stage. Before, the youngest one did not want to do anything in front of people, and now she has no problem at all.”

Great experience, the teacher is very good, with a lot of patience.”

Our four home-educated children have been learning music with Joanna since 2015, beginning with Dogs and Birds as 3-8 year olds and still going today as young teenagers working towards the higher grades in piano.
Learning piano with Joanna has been an excellent grounding in music for the kids, providing a wonderful foundation for second instruments and choirs – with two of the children now members of the National Concert Hall youth choirs.
Joanna’s way of guiding their learning works really well with a home-educating ethos. All four of our children are treated as individuals, and Joanna gets the very best from them. Most importantly they enjoy their interaction with Joanna and are thriving under her guidance. They have consistently achieved their grades – but they get so much more besides.
In short we would recommend any home-educating family to seize the opportunity of learning piano with Joanna.

We were delighted to continue piano lessons during lockdown via zoom calls and found it to be just as good as a face-to-face lessons . Look forward to continuing lessons via zoom in September. Thanks Joanna!”

Supervised practice with Ardagh Music Room gave structure to the day during lockdown, and has become an enjoyable daily event for my two girls, thank you Joanna.”

“We have been going to Joanna for a number of years and have found Joanna to be an excellent teacher at both adults and child lessons. Also throughout the covid 19 epidemic she has gone over and above what was required. I would 100% recommend Joanna and Ardagh Music Room for the great style of teaching, helpfulness, kindness and ability to adapt lessons when necessary.”

My three children really enjoy their piano lessons with Joanna and are progressing well through the grades. She is also very helpful in guiding them through any contemporary pieces they pick outside of the grading structure. I would highly recommend Ardagh School of Music!”

Thank you Joanna for providing Jamie with music during the covid. It was great to keep some routine for him at this time and he enjoyed the extra time with his piano. Thank you for your effort and support.
