The lessons which are being organised by P.S.A.L.M, and which are fully booked, have been funded by the Church of Ireland Priorities Fund and the Monaghan Presbytery.

The tutor is Mrs Kathy Bae, a teacher from County Monaghan, who graduated from Queen's University Belfast with a B.A. in Music and English. Subsequent studies led to a Postgraduate Certificate in Music Education and a Piano Teacher's Certificate from Trinity College, London (LTCL).

She has spent time studying organ/church music in Canada and continued development in these areas during her years living in Seoul, South Korea.

She now lives in Monaghan with her Korean husband and two children. She teaches piano and music theory and is involved in church music of various kinds on a regular basis.

This is the latest P.S.A.L.M. initiative to encourage musicians to use their talents to contribute to the ministry of music in their churches and schools on a regular basis.

P.S.A.L.M. wishes to acknowledge the funding it has received from the Monaghan Presbytery (2015) and the Church of Ireland Priorities Fund (2017).
