Patrick King Piano & Clarinet Lessons

Growing up in Dublin, Patrick commenced piano lessons at the Royal Irish Academy of Music at the age of five. A few years later he took up theory lessons, then clarinet lessons. This gave Patrick an early start playing with ensembles, starting with the RIAM Junior and then Senior Wind bands, and then the Dublin Youth Orchestra intermediate orchestra and Symphony orchestra where Patrick played as first clarinet for two years.

In the meantime Patrick also took up percussion and singing in the RIAM, as he was performing with bands using these instruments, as well as guitar.

Patrick focused his competition efforts on the piano and clarinet, winning numerous Feis Ceol competitions along with Newpark Music Festival and Wesley competition events during his school years.

In 2008 Patrick was selected with other RIAM students to collaborate with DIT students in composing and performing a piece with Paul Rissmann for composer Arvo Pärt to open the Living Music Festival that year. This experience drove Patrick to seek more opportunities to play improvisational and original music, starting with the RIAM jazz band.

Patrick completed a performance diploma (Hons) in piano as well as ABRSM grade 8 in Clarinet (Dist) and RIAM level 10 exams in Piano, Clarinet and Music Theory (all Distinctions).

Patrick embarked on a degree in Genetics, but continued to teach students piano and clarinet, while performing with the Trinity Singers and Swing ensemble, and collaborating with a growing range of musicians.
