Caitríona Walsh

Lecturing in Film Music & Piano, University College Cork

I'm a writer and music educator based in Cork, Ireland. My writing foregrounds femininity, eros, and the body as thematic scaffolds for exploring soundtrack ingenuity – and ways in which screen music enables us to hear all "the feels" – especially in film scores by composers like Jonny Greenwood and Mica Levi with a background in popular music.

My work has featured in national radio podcasts and print in the Irish popular press, and in international publications like 'Music and the Moving Image' journal, and 'Women’s Music for the Screen: Diverse Narratives in Sound' – the first book of its kind dedicated to spotlighting the output of female screen composers.

My teaching ethos is person-centred, drawing from my background in psychology and pedagogy, and ongoing engagement with modalities of health and holism. I emphasise integrative, embodied educational strategies in order to inspire students, to centre them comfortably in physicality, and to empower them to actualise their musical, intellectual, and creative potential 💟
