While offering all the benefits of a musical community such as concerts, classes, ensembles and private tuition, we provide personalized musical development for any level, genre and age (toddler to mature adult) - with the convenience of conducting all communication directly with the tutor.
Through our diverse, yet complimentary curricula, our international team of tutors specializes in making theory practical. Specialism is an important word here at MusicFirst NI, as our tutors only teach their own first-study instruments and subjects in which they have performed professionally.
Come learn from teachers who can and are doing! We would love to help you advance your musical knowledge, refine your solos, enhance your improvisation skills and polish your performance, all while boosting your confidence and having fun.
Aoife Lynch’s interest in music began at an early age, when studying piano at the age of four under the tutelage of Mr. Murray Erskine. As her interest in music broadened she began to study percussion specialising in drums under Mr. Michael Bradley as well as enriching her musical knowledge with study of music theory.
In June 2004, Aoife was selected to attend the ‘Arts Academy’ summer scheme funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland during which time she was introduced to the world of composition by composer Elaine Agnew. After successfully achieving DipLCM in Pianoforte Performance in June 2005 at the age of 17, Aoife proceeded to study music at third level education in Queen’s University of Belfast studying both composition and performance.
Aoife’s understanding of composition was greatly enhanced by her study of pianoforte performance under the expert pianist, Mr. Michael McGuffin as well as jazz and experimental percussion under jazz percussionists Steve Davis, Paul Wertico and Paul Clarvis. She was a member of many ensembles such as the Queen’s Music Society choir (repetitieur), Queen’s Camerata Orchestra (percussion) and the QUBe ensemble (piano/percussion), which is an ensemble specialising in improvisation and musical performance games such John Zorn’s Cobra. During her time in third level education, Aoife was often requested to be a performer by fellow composers and therefore she gained a lot of experience working with composers ranging from undergraduate students to professional composers.
