Susan is a much sought after instrumental music teacher who offers one to one and small group tuition in Tralee. She started providing music classes at the Kerry School of Music in 1996 teaching concertina and concert flute. Having taken a break to focus on her academic work, she recently established a TuneSchool to share her love of Irish traditional music.


Susan has significant classroom teaching experience at both second and third level. She has a diverse skill range which encompasses music theory, composition & arrangement, music studies (Irish traditional, popular & world music) and performance ensembles (wind, percussion, traditional Irish and popular music bands).


Susan is an advocate for inclusive music education and integrating technology into the music classroom. She has gained proficiency in the use of Pro Tools, Ableton and Sibelius which she uses as creative tools in her teaching.


Susan's performance ability, her relationship with pupils and her H.Dip in Education has led to numerous engagements as an adjudicator and results authenticator.
