Aine McLoughlin

Aine McLoughlin

London based multi-instrumentalist Aine McLoughlin is not your typical musician. Born and raised in Mullagh Co Cavan, Ireland, she realised from an early age that though she could turn her hand to many instruments (including the guitar and piano), her real passion was for a lesser-loved instrument - the accordion.

Guitar

From Switzerland, I am a guitarist and teacher. I studied for a BA Hons in London in 2010 and began teaching for Music House for Children in 2012. I believe that every person is different and learns in their own way to which I adjust using a range of visual and/or auditory mediums, transmitting knowledge through theory and games.
