In an era where technology permeates our lives it is important to be able to make music using technology. In this course students become acquainted with software used to edit sound, write music and compose.

In our summer schemes children engage in innovative activity based music courses informed by the latest research in music psychology and education. The courses are great fun and educational, designed to develop children musical potential, confidence in music making and performing in a progressive and supportive environment.


Apart from Enact Music concerts our students fully engage with the local musical community through performance at various music festivals and competitions (e.g. Holywood Music Festival, Lagan Festival, Belfast Music Festival, EPTA).

We love teaching

Dr Lilian Simones

Director and Piano Teacher

CME Level 4, Course Director

Designated Teacher for Child Protection

Data Protection Officer

Through multifaceted professional experiences in the music industry and academic settings, I have attained an intimate knowledge of the musical learning process and the wide range of skills musicians require to succeed in today’s world. I decided to found Enact Music because I consider that most music educational scenarios have not moved with time and are outdated by not taking on board relevant research insights into their curricular offer and teaching practice. 


For the past 25 years I have worked extensively as a piano teacher, pianist and as a researcher. Apart from my current role as Director of Enact Music and Course Director for the CME course Level 4 accredited by Trinity College London, I am a Careers Consultant (Researcher Training and Development) at Queen's University, Belfast. 


I have been project manager for a number of funded research projects in the areas of gesture in instrumental music and attitudes towards music performance modules in HE. My special research interests are improvisation in the instrumental music teaching and learning context, music pedagogy in the 21st Century and researcher development. I completed a MA in Music Psychology in Education at the University of Sheffield in 2011 and a PhD in instrumental music pedagogy at Queen's University Belfast in 2014.

Elisabete Tavares

Enact Music Administrator

Deputy Designated Teacher for Child Protection

Deputy Data Protection Officer

I am an experienced Teacher, with a background in administration. In previous administrative roles I have worked as team leader, designed and managed projects, worked effectively on multiple and diverse projects simultaneously, organised and managed resources adjusting priorities as required. My previous experience also includes classroom teaching in my speciality areas (English and Portuguese), online tutoring sessions, translation and proofreading tasks worldwide. On a personal note, I enjoy reading a lot and spending time with my family.

Hannah Joy Hyndmann

Piano and Violin Teacher

I have recently graduated from Queen's University Belfast with a degree in music. Growing up, music was always a massive part of my childhood. I remember being keen to start piano lessons as young as 6 years old, and from there also picking up violin and being a part of any ensemble I could. As I grew in understanding and command of my two instruments a desire to share this passion also grew alongside. 


I have been teaching privately for six years now. For me, music education is about the individual: releasing and nurturing musicality and creativity is key to every musical experience. Being a part of this process is an exciting responsibility. I am very privileged to have the opportunity to come on board with Enact Music and be a part of a team of like-minded people! 

Bethany Gilbert

Piano, Harp and Music Theory Teacher

I am a 22 year old pianist from Portadown, Co. Armagh, currently residing in Belfast. I recently graduated from Queen’s University as a Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours, and have competed in many piano competitions around Northern Ireland. I have been awarded titles such as “Most Promising Pianist” in my teenage years, and more recently was awarded the Flax Trust first prize bursary for my degree’s final piano recital. I will undertake a Master’s degree in Music Research (MRes) beginning September 2018.


A teacher for the past five years, I am completely driven by my passion for music, and as a piano teacher my main goal is to instil this same passion into my students by gaining an intuitive understanding of each student and subsequently tailoring lessons to the individual. To me, music is an absolutely invaluable tool - not just because of the skills gained but also as an essential means of expression (vital for mental health!), that will stay with you for life.

Lyndsey McDowell

Flute and Music Theory Teacher

I am a flute, piano tutor and music theory teacher who graduated with a Music degree from QUB back in 2011. Since then I have been teaching privately, at the Junior Academy of Music at Queen’s University Belfast and Enact Music. I also have experience teaching woodwind with CBSM and the Lisburn Music Centre. 


My teaching is aimed at developing students’ ability to think and act independently while experimenting with music. To achieve this I use a student centred approach.

Mary Quinn

Violin and Music Theory Teacher

Having completed a BMus in 2017 at Queen’s University, Belfast I took up the violin at the age of 7 with local teacher Sheila Thompson and later progressed to Young European Strings School of Music under the tutelage of Dr. Ronald Masin and Joanne Quigley at Queen's University, Belfast. I have completed the Associated Board Schools of Music exams to and including Diploma level.


While at YES School of Music I was member of the Chamber orchestra travelling internationally. I have played masterclasses with world renowned violinists Ray Chen, Gwendolyn Masin and Remus Azoitei. In 2015 I was awarded the Hamilton Harty Scholarship that allowed me to travel to Romania and take part in a residential violin masterclass for two weeks. This year I will be studying for a Music Masters Degree at QUB.

Helena Howie

Singing Teacher

I am a classically trained freelance singer with a Bachelor of Music (Hons) degree from Bangor University where I specialised in performance and vocal pedagogy. I currently teach privately and also at the Junior Academy of Music and Enact Music. Through my role as Events Manager for the Flax Trust I organise and facilitate workshops with primary and secondary schools which provide spaces to explore vocal techniques and choral teamwork.


I teach both classical and musical theatre syllabus in individual and group settings where I strive to instil sound musicianship and confidence in my students when performing with their personal and unique instrument.
