Frieda Freytag is originally from Germany and has been playing the cello for over 25 years. She spent 12 years in German music schools studying cello, piano and music theory, during which time she spent playing and performing with youth orchestras and chamber music groups.
After working as a church musician in Berlin, she came to Ireland 10 years ago and made the cello the centre of her musical career. She is performing, recording and arranging music for bands and singer-song writers as well as teaching both cello and piano to children and adult beginners.
Her teaching benefits as much from her classical music education as from her vast experience in modern and pop music. Along with preparing her students for classical exams and helping them to become confident, happy players, she always encourages them to explore improvisation, composition and, most importantly, the joy of making music together.
Our experience of KSM over the last ten years has been very positive. Four children, four instruments and four very different attitudes to practice, but all have been infected by Paul’s boundless enthusiasm for the pure joy of music
My daughter has been taking piano lessons in the Kilternan School of Music for 3 years. She loves her teacher and lessons. She has achieved extremely high results in her exams and loves playing in the mini concerts throughout the year.
My family will be attending KSM for their 6th year this September. I have 3 children aged between 10 and 13. It was my daughter who brought us to music through violin by attending the pre instrumental class and she just loved it.
