All of our teachers are fully qualified music teachers and professional musicians. It is Mini Music's policy that all teachers have Garda Clearance Certificates.
Rebecca Maybin (Director)
BMus Pedagogy, ATCL Performance
Rebecca's love of music began at the age of four learning the violin. In later years she took up the viola, piano and saxophone.
After successfully auditioning for both the Dublin Youth Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra of Ireland, she knew music was to be her life! Rebecca studied the viola as her main instrument in the Conservatory of Music and Drama DIT specialising in Pedagogy. It was during her college years that she developed a passion for Early Years Music Education.
Since graduating, Rebecca has been teaching violin and viola in the Churchtown School of Music and Wesley College Dublin.
Anne Marie Papin
Anne Marie started learning music at the age of eight, and by the age of nine decided that she wanted to play the Concert Harp, having only heard it on the radio, but not aware of the huge instrument she was about to commit to!
Alongside music theory and choir, she studied the harp in the Conservatoire de Nantes, France, and then followed her teacher to Paris where she obtained a “Premier Prix de la Ville de Paris” with honours.
She continued her postgraduate studies in Harp Performance in London, at the Royal College of Music, finishing with a PgDip and AdPgDip after two years.
Anne Marie moved to Dublin five years ago, and started playing as a freelance musician for the Symphony Orchestra, the RTE Concert Orchestra and the Ulster Orchestra. She has been teaching the Celtic harp in Churchtown School of Music for three years now and joined the Mini Music team two years ago.
Rob recently obtained his degree from the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama specializing in vocal performance.
He has performed with numerous Opera Companies and Musical societies throughout Ireland as a soloist and member of the chorus, most recently performing in Opera Theatre Company's touring production of Carmen.
He has over four years teaching experience and is looking forward to teaming up with his new pal Mini this September.
