I'm a Doctoral Student in Music and Music Education at Teachers College, Columbia from Ireland. A first class graduate of Trinity College, Dublin (B.A. in Music and Irish,Gaelic) and University College, Dublin (M.A. in Arts Management and Cultural Policy), I play the piano, viola,violin (including traditional Irish Fiddle), I hold teachers' diplomas (both viola and piano; L.R.I.A.M.) from the Royal Irish Academy of Music where I was a student for over 18 years. I also have a diploma in traditional Irish Music (T.T.C.T.). I'm on study leave from Belvedere College, Dublin (where I set up a wind band program) and from the National College of Ireland,Maynooth (where I taught music methodologies to post graduate students). My research interests include instrumental instruction and teacher training under the supervision of Dr. Allsup and Dr. Abeles. An All-Ireland Fleadh Ceoil winner, I'm a traditional fiddle player performing at all the major International folk festivals for over a decade. In June, 2004, whilst working as Music Director for the Centenary Bloomsday on Broadway 12 hour marathon performance at Symphony Space in New York City, I was invited by Manhattan Comhaltas (Irish Music Organization) to perform at various venues throughout Manhattan. I continue to perform regularly around the city and continue to produce concerts fusing the classical and traditional Irish genres. I perform regularly with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra in Ireland and have toured extensively throughout Europe and the United States.
