Kerry music students hit all the right notes
There was plenty of music in the air around Killarney recently as four Kerry students picked up their well-earned accreditations from the London College of Music at the annual Kingdom Music Academy graduation ceremony held at the Aghadoe Heights Hotel last Sunday.
Liadh O'Sullivan from Glenflesk and Jack Teahan from Aghadoe both received London College of Music Diplomas in 'Performance in Piano'. Deirdre Keane from Killorglin received her London College of Music Diploma in 'Piano Teaching', while Danny Tobin received his Diploma in 'Guitar Performance'.
"They are students of ours and we work with the London College of Music as they are one of the most prestigious there is. We're very proud of the students as they work hard and deserve their recognition," said Sean Treacy of the Kingdom Music Academy.
The points from the diplomas can also be used as entry to university and the study of subjects outside of music if they so wish. However, there's every indication that music is something that sounds pretty good for the foreseeable future.
"Their achievements are really a reflection of not just their own hard work, but also the high standards we aim to maintain here at Kingdom Music Academy.
We'll shortly be celebrating 25-years on the go and we teach music in Killorglin, Killarney, Caragh Lake and Beaufort. We also work in an advisory capacity for the 'Young Musician of the Year' with Killarney Rotary Club," added Sean.
