Welcome to Kevin O’Carroll Music

Engaging - Educating - Entertaining are all part of what Kevin O’Carroll Music wants to be for customers.

Through Workshops, Consultancy and Performance, Kevin's aim is to assist you as a conductor or performer to achieve your potential,  while at the same time ensuring you have fun in the process.   After all, music is part of the entertainment business. It is entertainment for both the audience and for the performers.

With many years of experience in a wide variety of musical disciplines, Kevin O'Carroll Music is almost a one stop shop for classical music consultancy services.  With a background in brass playing and huge experience in conducting choirs, orchestras and musical theatre, Kevin has Masters in Choral Conducting and is currently working on a PhD Arts Practice at the University of Limerick.

Now regularly employed as an adjudicator at music festivals and also as an examiner with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Kevin knows what makes an excellent performance.  As a performer himself with choirs and orchestras Kevin also knows the challenges faced by live performance.  He is therefore the ideal person to contact when faced with musical challenges.

His book on Choral Conducting is the first such Irish publication and is on the recommended reading list of several third level colleges and choral resource web sites. The book deals with the situation as we find it on the ground and is suitable for new or experienced conductors.  Kevin uses it as a text book for his various university conducting students.

Choir Voicing Review :-

‘Having seen this technique in action, it was fascinating to observe the change in vocal tone and unity that it brought about in the choirs that Kevin worked with. The result was obvious for the singers themselves but even more so for the listener. Every choir would find this technique to be beneficial.’ -                     Dermot O'Callaghan CEO of Association of Irish Choirs
