We arrange our exams through various boards including RockSchool. ICM is one of the largest Rockschool exam centres in UK or Ireland. So why not come on down and get graded. These exams are taken by students of all ages and abilities and range from Debut to Grade 8 plus Diplomas in both performance and teaching.


We also specialise in teaching students how to play together in bands at our regular Saturday Band Workshops (2-3pm every Saturday in term-time). From time to time we have master classes with guest speakers: in the past these have included Colin Reid, Louis Stewart and Rab McCullough.

Most lessons are taught on a one-to-one basis with your tutor but we also do group lessons for beginner guitar and vocals. The price for tuition is £20 per half-hour lesson and if you are happy with your initial lesson you are required to sign up and pay for the term in full or by instalments. Students can start at ICM at any week in any term.

We teach the following guitar styles…Blues, rock, pop, jazz, finger-style, acoustic, classical, heavy metal, reggae, funk. Techniques include chord playing, soloing, alternate picking, sweep picking, slide playing, open tunings, and many more. ICM has 4 guitar tutors, some of the best players in Ireland, all having music teaching diploma qualifications or higher and all are performing musicians with many years teaching experience. We can help you get a grade – Rockschool, AB, RGT, other boards, or help with the basic or advanced techniques. We’ll teach you to read music on guitar, how to transcribe from CD, or simply come to be inspired and revitalise your guitar playing with a dose of enthusiasm and excitement. Students must have their own guitar – electric (and a lead) or acoustic.



We have a dedicated bass tutor. Many other schools use guitar teachers to teach bass: Bass students deserve a Bass teacher. We do styles – rock, pop, reggae, James Jamerson, jazz, slap, Jaco Pastorius, Musical Theatre, etc plus reading skills using Bass Clef. Students must have their own electroic bass + lead
