The Leinster School of Music & Drama Guitar Grade Examinations Syllabus HISTORY The School was founded in 1904 by Samuel Myerscough, an acclaimed musician, teacher and examiner. Even in the School’s infancy students travelled from throughout Ireland to attend lessons.

Pupils came from as far north as Enniskillen, southwards from Waterford, and across from Galway.” This tradition continues to the present day, with students travelling from as far as Derry and Donegal, and from Cork and Kerry. The School's original teaching staff included Madame Quinton Rosse, Madame Coslett Heller and esteemed piano tutors Patricia Read and May Cosgrave.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
