Music at Midday June Guitar Web

Soloist: Claudia Duffy (Winner of MTUCSM Junior Recital Competition 2022 & Feis Ceoil winner).

12 year old Claudia Duffy, a brilliant young classical guitarist, who studies with Jerry Creedon at the MTU Cork School of Music, won the Junior Classical Guitar under 16 Competition at the Feis Ceoil in Dublin recently, having already won the Junior Classical Guitar under 12 Competition in 2021.

Adjudicator and International Performer, Craig Ogden, highlighted the strong sense of musicality that comes through in her playing as well as her strong sound and attention to detail.

Claudia also won the MTUCSM Junior Recital competition earlier this year.

Claudia travels up to MTUCSM every week from Dingle in West Kerry. That is a 2.5 hour journey each way!  She is in 6th class in Ballyferriter NS. That is a major commitment and her achievements are richly deserved.  

This highlights the wide educational reach of the MTU Cork School of Music especially In the counties of Cork and Kerry.
