Andrea Byrne (Piano)


Originally from Hungary, and residing in Ireland for the past decade, Andrea has 24 years’ experience in the field of music education, both in private and school settings, specialising in teaching piano for the younger or beginner student. Her motto is to help discover the wonders of music for all students regardless of age, level or interest.
Andrea’s main goal is to provide a lesson which is interesting (telling stories about music, building a good student-teacher bond) so the students will enjoy playing the piano!

Andrea also uses a special interactive, kinesthetic programme for children aged from 3 to 7. It is based on the famous Kodály-method, whose slogan is “Let music belong to everyone!” During the 30-minute lesson, children listen and play music, watch puppet shows, and participate in dancing and singing.

Music Education

Andrea started learning piano at the age of 7 and went to the Franz Liszt Music School in Hungary to complete the piano studies of classical music equivalent to RIAM grade 8. She was a member of the Kodály Zoltán Children’s Choir for 8 years and participated in its concerts and tours.
Andrea also holds a degree Bachelor of Education (Juhasz Gyula Faculty in József Attila University of Szeged, Hungary 1998), and another degree Bachelor of English Language Teaching (József Attila University of Szeged, Hungary 2002)
