Student of the week

Michael Claffey

Michael Claffey is our fifteenth student of the week. 

The Oranmore based student currently takes his lessons online.

 Gregory Prendergast, his nominating teacher, says, 

"Michael has grown in leaps and bounds since starting lessons. He now has a repertoire consisting of traditional, rock, pop, and jazz songs.

Strong and consistent practice has made Michael an excellent rhythm player, managing to hold the backing to some very difficult pieces. On top of all this, during lockdown, he has mastered a few scales and applied them appropriately to reveal some tasteful soloing work. I am absolutely delighted with his progress so far. Keep up the great work!"

Excellent to hear sustained effort wins again.

Big congratulations to Michael and the Claffey family.
