Music Education

 

Arthur began playing the piano at the age of nine and the organ at the age of sixteen. In 2015 he moved to Dublin from his native Kildare to study music in trinity college Dublin where he specialized in composition. During this time he began organ lessons under Dr. David Adams. He held the title of organ scholar of Trinity College Dublin for three years during his undergrad. 

 

He competed in the Feis Ceoil numerous times and in 2018 was awarded the Catherine MacCauly Perpetual cup, awarded to the most promising organ player across all the organ categories. 

 

In 2019 he went to study full time in the Royal Irish Academy of Music completing a masters in performance playing the organ in 2021. He graduated with an overall distinction. He took up the harpsichord during his masters and began playing with ensembles.

Teaching

 

Arthur has enjoyed teaching pupils in their homes for the past few years in Dublin. They have ranged from young children to adults all of a mixed ability.

 

He is happy preparing students for grade exams and/ or competitions but is conscious that these are not always necessary elements of learning the piano.

 

He tries to adapt his teaching style to each of the pupils own particular needs and interests. In doing this he always hopes to create a warm environment in which the pupil feels relaxed yet challenged and is able to get the most out of the learning experience whilst most importantly having fun along the way! 

Performing

Performance-wise, Arthur's big love is baroque and renaissance music.

 

As well as playing other peoples works, he is a keen improviser with a big love for jazz music.

 

Most recently he has been appointed as organ scholar to Christchurch Cathedral Dublin.
