Prior to sitting the Leaving Certificate examinations in most schools, many students report they received too little guidance, failed to prepare adequately or they would just like to brush up on some theory prior to sitting the examinations.
Fortunately, MAME are here to help.
We offer a comprehensive and student orientated grind course for music preparation. Through our grinds classes we give students a breakdown of previous examination questions, guidance on how best to approach and answer specific style questions, while also dealing with the core fundamentals of music for the Leaving Certificate.
Our grinds classes are well recognised as an effective resource for exam preparation we are listed with www.grinddoctor.ie as a top source for tuition in music.
For the student who has already mastered the basics, we offer a range of different classes which will explore more advanced techniques and styles. The aim of these seminars is improvement and development.
This is considered an advanced class and as such, will not suit beginners. Different styles of play are taught in different seminars. Please contact us directly to book your place.
Popular music by definition belongs to a number of musical genres but has a wide appeal. The simplicity of popular music makes it a very attractive area of study for younger students. Students may be streamed into classes based on age, however, classes are not limited to the younger students.
Popular music classes encompass all the aspects of popular music including song structure, melody writing and backing chords, performance choreography and body language, the history and development of popular music, popular music from a global perspective, and musicianship.
The use of technology in performance is also explored and students will learn how to set up stage equipment etc throughout the course. Students do not need to know how to play any instrument prior to beginning class.
The annual MAME traditional Irish Harp course runs throughout the summer. This popular course is aimed at students who have an interest in the Harp and would wish to better their knowledge and performance. The course is two weeks in duration. Numbers are kept to a minimum and classes are streamed based on ability.
Beginners are welcome. The course facilitates students of all levels of experience and proficiency. Please contact us to discuss availability. Children and adult students will not be in the same class.
"Rock Music" is very modern and new genre of music. Rock is a form of popular music and originated from rock and roll and pop music.

The class has been formed to meet the ever growing demand for effective tuition in this style of music. Students typically study a variety of instruments including the electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, piano synthesiser and percussion. Students are encouraged to be creative.
