About Ciara

Piano, Recorder and Music Theory Teacher

I am a third year Undergraduate student, studying at the Royal College of Music, one of the world's leading music conservatories, where I am a scholar supported by the Trustees of Henry Wood Trust. My principle instrument is the recorder. I have a teaching diploma with the ABRSM. I have taught the recorder and piano for 6 years now in both individual and group settings. I have entered many students in for grade examinations and am very passionate about what I do. So far all of the students entered have received Distinctions, with one achieving two national awards to mark high achievement in their exams.

I have taught students between the age of five to late-thirties.

My goal when teaching is to teach strong foundations and teach an overall understanding of Music which can then be applied to whatever other instruments you may wish to explore. It is a serious kind of fun and when enough time and effort is applied it can be an incredible way to express yourself and just relax.

Also, it is never too late to start learning!

Amazing Teacher

Written by Geraldine M
My daughter was very fortunate to have Ciara as her first recorder teacher. She started with her when she was 10 years old and quickly progressed. Her style of teaching was second to none and Ciara instilled in my daughter a love for this instrument. In my daughter's own words "Ciara is an amazing recorder teacher. When I first went to Ciara, I had no experience with the recorder. The way she taught me made me want to practise more and more. She is an incredible teacher."

Ciara taught my daughter Piano, she is an excellent tutor, I highly recommend her, she is dedicated, hard working and has excellent people skills. My daughter loved her time spent with Ciara. She made the lessons fun and age appropriate, she shared her love for music and talents, which helped my daughter gain a love for music and she enjoyed every second of her time spent with Ciara. My daughter gained a distinction in her exam.
Ciara moved as she got accepted into London Collage of Music, so she could no longer continue with the lessons.

Amazing teacher

Written by Margaret T
Ciara was a very enthusiastic teacher, she has a lovely calm kind nature and put my two girls at ease right away. Ciara made the lessons fun and they looked forward to going each week. Ciara was always well prepared and had what ever resources needed to make the lesson a success. Ciara is a brilliant teacher.
My children love playing piano and recorder and it is thanks to Ciara that they are confident in doing this.

Reference for Ms Ciara Fagan

Written by Kevin M
My daughters (age 10 and 15 at the time) started piano lessons with Ciara Fagan in April 2013 for 2 years up to her departure to college. They made great progress under Ciara's steady guidance and enthusiasm; while always very professional and mature in her teaching method, Ciara made it an enjoyable and positive experience. Both girls were encouraged to play for lessons and for fun; Ciara's own talent as a performer at school and local concerts has been a great inspiration to many young music-lovers. We wish Ciara all the best in her future career and well-earned success!
Now aged 14, my daughter has kept up the piano; her current teacher told me that Ciara provided her with an excellent start both to her playing technique and her sight-reading and she achieved a Dist

Music teacher

Written by Karen K
Ciara is an excellent teacher. She made my daughter want to learn the recorder, she looked forward to going to lessons every week. As my daughter was only 6 when she started recorder Ciara's gentle and fun nature was fabulous. As Ciara was her 1st music teacher- she gave her her love of the recorder which has in turn made her progress with the instrument. A perfect role model for young students, dedicated and diligent. Someone who's love for music and talents for different instruments has helped others to grow and flourish . I would highly recommend Ciara as a teacher, you couldn't find better.
Excellent teacher.. my daughter has gone from strength to strength in the recorder and is now on grade 2.. she loves to go and hear Ciara play when she's back at home giving a recital.

Superb tutor for first time piano player

Written by George W
As a 20 something complete piano novice, I cannot praise Ciara enough for her patient, warm and effective tutorage. She exudes an enthusiasm and knowledge of the instrument that helps to motivate and educate me in equal measure - I have enjoyed each session immensely and always look forward to my next!
Piano (Beginner)
After a month of lessons I am able to read and play basic pieces and I feel I have the core tools in place to move to the next stage of my development.

Wonderful tutor

Written by Paula E
I am training to become a Waldorf Steiner teacher and Ciara has been teaching me how to play the recorder.

She has been absolutely fabulous and very patient considering I am a complete beginner to music.

Ciara has taught me how to read music and given me really useful tips on how to improve and practise playing the recorder in my own time.

I absolutely recommend this tutor.
