Deiana Piano Academy - Piano Lessons Cork

Music Theory tuition is available for students of all ages and abilities, whether learning for personal interest or preparing for grade examinations.

The course can also complement the study of Music at both Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate level.

The study of Music Theory enables the student to understand better musical language, it gives an indispensable basis for becoming an independent learner and musician. It also acts as a first solid stepping stone to Music Analysis which is itself a window into the exciting world of Composition.

DPA students undertaking a grade examination usually follow the ABRSM syllabus, other syllabi however may be taken into consideration upon request.


Non-beginners wishing to undertake grade examinations should either present the most recently achieved examination certificate or else undergo a brief audition at DPA in order to continue to the next grade.
