She graduated with a joint honours degree in Irish Music & Dance and Gaeilge from the University of Limerick in 2016 and is currently undertaking the Máistear Gairmiúil san Oideachas in NUI Galway. Aoife released her first EP in 2017 and more recently came 2nd place at the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil sean-nós singing competition 2018.

   As well as being an Irish teacher, Aoife also enjoys teaching traditional singing to both adults and kids of all ages. She especially loves working with kids and enjoys their enthusiasm and creativity. Given that sean-nós singing is one of the most difficult art forms of singing and rooted in our culture, Aoife likes to show students to new ways at approaching and looking at singing focusing on singing from the heart with feeling. Aoife has a great also for Musical Theatre and all genres of singing and is delighted to have joined the StageSchool Ireland team.
