This year local Fethard piano teacher, Stuart Clooney, completed his 20th year of teaching piano. With local interest in learning to play the piano growing steadily, Stuart has a huge advantage after accumulating 20 years of teaching experience to students of all levels of abilities, from beginner up to senior repertoire recital.
This year’s exams were held in Fethard during the last week of May and after the anxious waiting period for results, the dedication and hard work paid dividend for the students. Honours and First-Class Honours were obtained by all students including eight medals to students of various levels, became the highlight of a very rewarding and successful two decades of teaching piano for Stuart.

The following list includes students awarded with a Leinster School of Music medal: James Clooney, Gavin Neville, Jack Hennessey, Micheál O’Rahilly, Jenna Hayes, Yasmin Woodlock, Mark O’Meara and Joe Traynor.
Stuart would like to say a big thank you to students and parents, past and present, for their support over his 20 years of teaching and is looking forward to continuing with his new and returning students in September.
