Fionn Ó Ceallacháin

Course Co-ordinator BAPM, Lecturer in Percussion


Based in the south of Ireland, Fionn has established himself as a conscientious and
respected professional – both as a performer and educator. Since 2010 Fionn has
dedicated the vast majority of his time to expanding the popular music education
opportunities available in his hometown of Cork. During this time Fionn was Senior Drum Tutor at The Academy of Popular Music - a position he held for 3 years before leaving to commit fully to his current position at the CIT Cork School of Music. Fionn is now a course co-ordinator for the BA (Hons) Popular Music
degree and he teaches drum kit and rhythm theory as part of this course. Fionn also works
in the percussion department where he teaches grade students and leads the CSM Junior
Percussion Ensemble.
Away from his role as an educator, Fionn has been fortunate enough to perform with
notable Irish-based musicians such as Chicago-born soul diva Karen Underwood, musical
director/ composer John O Brien, West End musical star Rebecca Storm, blues guitarist
Nigel Mooney, Chicago-born composer/ producer Erik Gullikson, jazz saxophonist Karl
Rooney, arranger/ pianist Cian Boylan, singer-songwriter Jack O’ Rourke and original jazz
group The Phill Collins Trio
.
Fionn proudly endorses Istanbul Agop cymbals in Ireland and the UK.
