I’ve recently joined The Vocal and Music Academy in Leixlip . Learning to sing , and having the confidence to do so is really important to me , and something I have longed to do for some time . Bobby is my one on one singing tutor. I’m really enjoying the weekly class , Bobby is excellent and also a most patient down to earth teacher , who provides a lovely relaxed singing environment for me . I’m really enjoying ‘learning to sing ‘ with Bobby . Sometimes we need a push to get up and do things ( outside of our comfort zone ) , I’m delighted I’ve found The Vocal and Music Academy on my doorstep, YOU will be too , so make that call !!!!

My son has been attending guitar lessons with Dave for a few years now. Dave has always been brilliant at putting him at ease and keeping him interested and engaged. Highly recommend!

Two lessons in with Bobby and I'm loving every second. He is fun, patient and really encouraging. I was very nervous about starting vocal coaching in my 30s but Bobby makes it so relaxed and easy - even via Zoom!

My son as been learning Ukulele & Guitar with David Mc Donald for the past 4 years. David has brought him on in leaps & bounds improving his playing and his confidence hugely to such an extent he played live for his primary school graduation in front of all the parents at NKETS.It is great to see him coming home absolutely buzzing from his weekly music lesson.

I have been taking guitar lessons from David for a couple of years and would highly recommend him. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is very flexible in adapting to my needs. He can change between formal graded exams to more freestyle approach as he is familiar with most genres of music.

Great place to enjoy learning music. I really enjoy my ukulele lessons with David. They are tailored to challenge while being very enjoyable and focus on learning new skills while enjoying the music I love. Recently due to unforeseen circumstances I couldn’t play the ukulele but I was able to switch to singing with Michelle which is also very enjoyable while overcoming challenges.

Highly recommend David at The Vocal Academy… I have been doing guitar lessons with David about 8 months now! I have progressed so much, strumming, finger picking and growing in confidence all the time. David is encouraging, patient and passionate about music and I look forward to my music lesson each week! The Vocal Academy will bring the best out of you so well worth a try👌

Bobby is a brilliant teacher. In only a couple of lessons he was able to show me how to open up my voice in ways I didn’t think possible before. The classes feel completely tailored to my needs and move at the right pace. Highly recommended.

I enjoy singing only as a hobby and in one of my YOLO moments, I decided I wanted to have my voice professionally assessed. I searched through google and booked my first lesson with Bobby. Let me tell you, it is one of the best decisions I have ever made!! I was super nervous but Bobby was so friendly and welcoming, I relaxed within the first few minutes. Bobby absolutely has a wealth of knowledge about his craft and he immediately knew what areas in my singing I could improve. After the class ended, I watched the recorded lesson and did the practice scales again. Just doing the one trick of adding “resistance” allowed me to sing a higher pitched song that I struggled to reach for weeks!! Of course, I didn’t hit it perfectly but I brushed on it without strain and struggle and I literally squealed in amazement!! I sang for the rest of the day after that 😅 Thank you so much Bobby and I’m excited to learn from you in my future classes!!

I took my first singing lessons (at 35 years old!!!) with Bobby at the vocal academy and I'm so glad I did! Bobby has a wealth of musical experience and knowledge and at week 3 I am already learning so much about singing and my voice. It's a fun, rewarding and enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend to all. Don't hesitate, book now!
