Hello! My name is Declan Plummer and I’m a music teacher who specialises in providing courses in GCSE, Leaving Cert., AS & A2 Music, Grades 1-8 Music Theory & Aural Skills (ABRSM, Trinity and RIAM), Music History, and Irish Traditional Music. I’ve created this website primarily to help those students who have enrolled in my classes. If you’re interested in joining one of my classes, just send me a quick email: declan_plummer@hotmail.com.

There are a number of parts to the website:

QUB

About Me: tells you a little about me, what I do and my research interests. There is also a Media page that contains pictures and audio examples of me performing Irish traditional music (if you’re into that sort of thing!). 

 

theory-books

Music Theory & Aural: offers lessons and handouts that cover beginner, intermediate and advanced music theory and ear training (aural skills). The courses offer students the chance to learn about these topics using videos, audio examples, exercises and handouts that summarise all the points discussed.

Mozart-Pic

Music History & Form: offers lessons that cover the history of classical music, focusing on composers and general developments in music history. Students have the opportunity to get a fuller understanding of musical appreciation using videos, audio examples, exercises and handouts that summarise all the points discussed.

GCSE, Leaving Cert., & AS/A2-Level: offers analysed scores, handouts, interactive PDFs and other audio-visual materials that cover all areas of each syllabus for those students taking GCSE, Leaving Certificate in Music, or A-Level music.

Octave Mandolin

Irish Traditional Music: offers lessons that cover beginner to advanced tuition in tin whistle, flute, bodhrán and Irish Bouzouki. Again, the courses offer students the opportunity to learn about these topics using videos, audio examples, exercises and handouts that summarise all the points discussed.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my website and please check back as I continually update the website with new things! I look forward to hearing from you!
