After School- lessons with Shane Cavanagh
We are extemely fortunate to not only have Ciara (as our main strings' tutor and orchestra conductor) but also her brother Shane (a gifted cellist, arranger and strings' project tutor) on the books in St. Peter's. Shane has been providing after-school lessons to many of our 2nd-6th class pupils for the past number of years. A lot of our orchestra students avail of lessons after school on Mondays and Fridays.

Shane also leads and conducts our past pupils' secondary school classical chamber orchestra. This group comprises of 14 past pupils who come back to St. Peter's once a week to enhance their musical skills and as a social occasion. St. Peter's N.S. made history this year as the only school to enter both a primary and a secondary school orchestra into Wesley Feis.
We hope our secondary school chamber group grows from strength to strength.
