Piano Academy of Ireland
We started out as a small school but have now expanded and are ready for the next step to brand ourselves and stay competitive in the corporate world of the music industry.
Our new name will be “Piano Academy of Ireland”
Basically, we offer private one on one piano lessons to all ages and levels as well as Pre-Instrumental courses for 3-6 year olds and Musicianship training for ages 6 and up
We also offer Adult Appreciation courses and higher level Performance Diploma course.
See current website at http://www.rathgarpiano.ie
(we receive a large volume of web traffic overall and our new website, with your new logo design, will be seen by many people from all parts of the world)
We've attached several files for your inspiration. Please check them out.
ALL PEOPLE, AGES AND ABILITIES. With the new name “Piano Academy of Ireland” we feel that we will draw people from all parts of Ireland and also from abroad.
1) Our flexible approach- teaching students of all ages, welcoming adults (and adult beginners in particular who may not have the courage to try the piano otherwise…including many students in their retirement)
2) Not being fixed on exams…our students have fun!
3) Being Ireland’s Only School of Piano, we are proud to celebrate just that….the Piano! We are passionate about the Piano and wish to share that passion. Students & parents put enormous trust in us.
4) We want to build upon the strong reputation we already have in Ireland and also expand our reach internationally.
WHAT WE WANT:
Sophisticated and timeless with an edge of contemporary is our style! We want something classy that will reflect the quality of the School.
Must be easy to read from a distance on a brass plaque. PLEASE take into consideration when designing the logo that something too intricate WILL NOT work (will be also engraved on a brass plaque to be mounted on the gate on a very busy street!) meaning lots of exposure for your logo design.
As you can see from our old ‘Rathgar Piano’ logo, we love purple and gold as they are very rich colors and they compliment each other. However we are open to other ideas so please feel free to express them! We also like black as it is in keeping with the keys of the piano.
We really like the "Steinway and Sons" Logo and font. What we like about it is that it incorporates two S's and a lyre which signifies music. We challenge you to come up with something even better! You might think about utilizing the letter PAI in some manner. We are open to new ideas as well so please don't hesitate to give them a try.
A different approach also would be the obvious way of utilizing the piano keys in some way into the logo.
WHAT WE DON'T WANT:
We do not want any cliched 'Irish' images such as Leprauchans, shamrocks or pots of gold swirling around piano keys.
