We have made significant investment in our teaching location to permit in person music classes.

We will have the option of online classes in the event of public health guidelines to this effect. These were successfully delivered throughout 2020/21.

Whether the classes are delivered in person or online, we have highly experienced teachers with first class teaching resources in our Spink Comhaltas music books and our online learning resources. Summary notes are issued by email at the end of each class setting out work covered, required practice, sound recordings and reference to music book.

Here is a summary of fees for music classes with Spink Comhaltas in 2021/22:
