ICM Director now an International RockSchool examiner

Michael McCormick, has now consoidated his role as a Rockschool examiner, with an exam tours in the middle east - Dubai and Qatar, Spain and Malaysia -  where students want to improve, just the same as in Ireland and the UK.

Many students are interested to find out that Michael spent 20 years in the Telecomms industry before starting ICM in 2002. He has Grade 8 in Guitar and also in Bass, from RockSchool as well as G5 Theory (ABRSM) and early grades in piano. In 2012 he gained his PGCE, in music, from the OU and does sub teaching occasionally.


One-On-One Theory tuition

If you are interested in learning theory but cannot make the tuesday evening class don't worry! The ICM theory teacher is available all weekday evenings. Theory at ICM covers all the exam boards; ABRSM, Trinity, LCM popular and classical theory as well as GCSE and A-level theory tuition.

All aspects of theory are taught with personal attention towards the individual pupil in the aim to answer their own questions rather than lecturing them on information they do not need. Our theory classes are taught in a relaxed and comfortable environment so do not be afraid to call or email us.

The normal ICM rates and conditions apply. Please see the booking and payment section for more information.


Get a RockSchool Grade

Do you want something to show for all the money you invest in music lessons. Ask us about entering for a Grade exam. All of our teachers have at least one Grade 8 themselves and enjoy working with pupils doing grades: it often makes the lessons more focused, especially for teenagers.

Everyone knows what "Black Belt" means. Grade 8 means the same thing - the top level. Here at ICM we have loads of pupils working their way up the grades. Quite often our students have their G8, before they leave school, some by GCSE. How good is that?

RockSchool grades are great fun and they tick all the boxes. They develop technique, band playing, sight reading and aural skills. You also get a recognised qualification giving UCAS points at G6 and above.

Ask us, if you are interested in exploring a grade for you or your child.


Musical Theatre

ICM now offer vocal tuition in this popular genre. Musical Theatre is much in demand and we are pleased to have new tutor Pauline Carville to deliver these lessons. For furter info or to book in, please call the office.
