Mr Benjamin Shaffrey

Licentiate Teacher of the Royal Irish Academy of Music
Instruments: Piano
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


Benjamin Shaffrey is my name and I am currently in 3rd year of the BMus undergraduate degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I am also a qualified Licentiate of the Royal Irish Academy of Music and have 5 years hands-on teaching experience to date, with excellent feedback and references to support.

Being from Ireland I have a lot of experience performing all around the country (most notably the National Concert Hall, Dublin and the RDS Concert Hall, Dublin) and have also received numerous commendations and prizes in many national competitions to date. In May 2012, I was selected as one of 3 Irish Competitors to represent Ireland in the 2012 Dublin international Piano Competition.

My approach to teaching is both flexible and motivational. In the 5 years I have been teaching I have encountered an enormous variety of students from all ages and ability with students as young as 5 and as old as 52. I have had particular success in my hands-on approach of working with the student on a personal level and helping them to practice in the most constructive and enjoyable way possible for them. I understand the importance of individuality, hard work and fun and I have never taught any 2 students in the same way. I am also very encouraging, friendly and stimulating as a teacher and extremely passionate about helping my students to get the most from their tuition and allowing them to develop a deep and abiding love for Music of any genre. Above all, I seek to give my students a musical education which they can take with them throughout their life and serve as both an invaluable tool for cognitive development and a lifelong interest and passion.
