As a mature student I have been taking guitar lessons with The Glasnevin Academy of Music for the last 10 years. The teachers are excellent, professional, encouraging, and fun – hence my continued involvement with the school. Through the school and Rock Jam, I have also become part of a band called ‘The Avenues’. It is a great opportunity to jam with other like-minded people, perform live, write our own material and, more recently, go into the recording studio. If making music is on your bucket list I would recommend the Glasnevin Academy of Music. Sonya and her team are the best, friendly and accommodating.
