I would highly recommend Nóra B. Kavanagh Music. Nora is a highly talented musician, a fantastic dedicated teacher and a wonderful role model for our young musicians.She runs an excellent School of Music offering tuition in many instruments, She is very helpful and offers lots of encouragement and advice. As a parent it is a joy to see my child leaving her class with a big smile on her face. I would highly recommend this School of Music.

Nóra is an excellent musician and teacher who has a calm, professional and attentive approach to her students.  She is extremely organised and has an amazing way of conveying her extraordinary talents to her students. Nóra without doubt leaves the love of the music with the student, a tremendous skill. The best compliment is always through the eyes of the child – Eoghan – “ Nora is great ”. Need I say anymore. Well done Nóra.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Nóra Kavanagh as one of the most professional, caring and dedicated music teachers I've ever met. Speaking from personal experience, you won't regret sending your child to Nóra, she's exceptional at her job.

My three daughters have all developed a love of traditional Irish music under the direction of Nóra, a hugely talented musician who in addition to playing numerous instruments also composes her own music. Nóra has a way of instilling a child with a love of music which makes them want to play their instruments for the sheer joy of it. Nóra’s organisation skills are second to none and this is another skill that the children learn and it’s very evident in their music folders. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Nóra

Both my girls learn tin whistle with Nóra - they love it & we love hearing the tunes they can play. I don’t know how she does it but they practice without me asking them to do it. They just enjoy it & that’s what I want their experience of learning music to be.

Thanks so much Nóra!

Nóra is an outstanding musician and teacher. She has taught both my children since they were 6
and 8. They are now in their mid-teens and love going to class with her. She is understanding and
has a fantastic way with children and teenagers. She is interested in their progress and knows each
child’s needs and interests, encouraging them all the way on their musical journeys. This is evident
in their examination results. I highly recommend Nóra and her teaching style.

Nóra is totally dedicated and a fantastic role model and mentor for her pupils. Thank you again Nora for your performance with those wonderful young musicians at our recent conference.
