Our Story

Tempo Music School was started in 2011 by local musician Robert O Connor.  In its early days lessons were taught from Rob’s home in Drumcondra.  In 2014 after the birth of his first child, he moved Tempo into the Arts and Business Community at 40 Drumcondra Road Lower.  Back then we had one room, one teacher, twenty four students and a regularly flooding basement. Now, we have a dedicated team of nine professional teachers, three rooms, 150 students, over a 1000 past pupils and a dry basement. It’s our goal to introduce music to as many people as possible in a fun and inspiring environment.

I can't speak highly enough of Tempo & Mauro who is a fantastic guitar teacher. My daughter has loved every moment of guitar lessons & has learned so much not only about guitar but music in general. We would highly recommend it to any budding musician. Thanks Robert & Mauro

Rob and the team in Tempo provide a supportive and encouraging atmosphere for anyone looking to learn an instrument. We have sampled piano and fiddle and both were excellent and set at the right pace to learn and enjoy.

My daughter is learning guitar at Tempo and is making good progress. Her teacher, Ken, is great- established a good rapport with her, he gives very clear instructions and makes each lesson fun and easy to learn. I would highly recommend Tempo.

My daughter has been a student there for the past few months. Her piano teachers are qualified and have been very professional and are very good with teaching complete beginners, very patient and full of positive feedback which has not scared my budding musician off. She has made great progress and current online lessons are also going very well. Comms from the admin team on lessons updates are very good. They offer a variety of individual and groups classes and payment plans. I am very happy to have found this school as it can be daunting to start playing an instrument and they have put my daughter at ease from the start. I definitely recommend this place.

Both my daughters have been with Tempo Music School for a while. The teacher are great. They are exceptional in this current climate and the challenge of online teaching. The school is very professional with frequent and clear communication. I would highly recommend. Thank you.

My daughter goes to fiddle lessons here. They have always been a pleasure to deal with. Very good communication at all times, especially when lessons had to go online. I would highly recommend them.
