I come to YOU!!!! Music lessons

Hi and welcome to my website. I hope you find it informative and helpful

My name is Sean Nolan, and I’ve been a private music teacher since 1983. It wasn’t a deliberate choice, but I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon this path. I teach guitar and ukulele to students of all ages and backgrounds. Besides teaching, I’ve also performed as a musician, both solo and with different bands.

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy writing and recording songs. I also love busking in Kilkenny. If you see me on the street, feel free to stop and chat. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

What I do and what you get

I offer personalized one-on-one lessons for guitar and ukulele. My teaching approach is centered around meeting the individual needs and preferences of my students. I believe that working with the music and songs they enjoy and want to learn yields better results than adhering strictly to a fixed syllabus.

All my classes are conducted on a one-to-one basis, and I provide home lessons by traveling to my students’ residences. I operate from Monday to Friday, covering a different area each day to accommodate students from various locations.

The can’s and cant’s of age

The question I often receive from adults is, “Am I too old?” The truth is, if you find yourself asking that question, you’re likely not aiming for a gig on the Late Late Show. But here’s the reality: if you’re asking that question, it’s probably because you have a genuine desire to learn an instrument for your own enjoyment and pleasure. In that case, age is never a barrier. No one is ever too old to pursue music for their own personal fulfillment.

Attention, parents! Before you find yourself pondering whether your child possesses the aptitude to learn a musical instrument (which, in most cases, they certainly do), I implore you to first consider whether your child is physically capable of holding the instrument. Especially for young children, the ideal instrument to begin their musical journey is the ukulele. Its small size, easy playability, and affordable cost make it the perfect stepping stone towards mastering larger and more complex instruments. So, please, take this into account when making your decision.


My rate for lessons is €90 for a package of four half-hour sessions. All lessons are conducted on a one-to-one basis, ensuring personalized attention and instruction. Lessons are scheduled for half an hour each week, and as previously mentioned, I provide the convenience of traveling to your location for the lessons.

Adult lessons are €25 per lesson and are taken on a fortnightly  basis. All lessons are one to one and I come to you.

So what next???

If you are interested in taking lessons with me or have any questions. Please give me a call/text or WhatsApp on 086 1021216 and I’ll be more than happy to help you.
