My Biography

Oonagh is a graduate of Waterford Institute of Technology having completed both a BAMus and a MA in Music Performance studying piano under the guidance of Malcolm Proud. She is now a lecturer in the W.I.T Music School teaching in many disciplines including theory, musicianship, aural skills and piano tuition for all ages. She is also a musical director and accompanist of the W.I.T Choral Programme working with three choirs; W.I.T Singing Club, W.I.T Junior Girls’ Choir and Waterford Larks.

 

In 2003 Oonagh won the Song/Ensemble Category in the Transatlantic Ireland-Newfoundland Partnership Composition Competition. Following this success Oonagh led many composition workshops in schools in Waterford City for Waterford New Music Week in 2004 and 2005.

 

As a pianist Oonagh has a great interest in accompanying choirs and instrumentalists for concerts and examinations. In 2004 she was the pianist-in-residence for the composer’s seminar at Musicfest in Aberystwyth, Wales. In 2005 she won the Senior Piano Competition in the Fintan O’Carroll Feis. Over the years she has participated in many piano masterclasses with such proficient performers as Finghin Collins, Márta Erdei, Thèrése Fahy, Míċeál O’Rourke, Duncan Honeybourne and Andrew Wilson-Dickson.
