Video Season 2 - Episode 1 - Suzanne Buttimer from the Rockwell Music Academy

September 11, 2021


Welcome to Season 2 of the Plus One podcast!   More amazing educators sharing their stories and approaches to teaching and learning, to give the rest of us ideas for improving our own practice.

Suzanne Buttimer runs the Rockwell Music Academy, based in Cashel, County Tipperary.  Suzanne is a different educator from any of my other guests – she teaches music, and everywhere but University & College, so we’re in a different educational space today, which is great!

What other websites or podcasts do you follow which inform you as an educator?


  • "My mission statement at my own school is to make music as accessible and far-reaching as possible. My main focus in 1-1 lessons is definitely what I call my graffiti analysis of the score and in group teaching its casting. I am fortunate that my subject by its very nature is creative and innovative."
  • “If you want a student to open up to you, you have to open up to them”
