Morning times are centred around learning traditional Irish music. The tunes, techniques and stylistic features that make the tunes sound uniquely Irish are the focus of the classes.

A well planned itinerary ensures you make the most of your time, learning, exploring, absorbing and enjoying a truly unique Irish music holiday.
All levels of fiddlers or violinists are welcomed onto the different courses designed especially for the varying ability of players, from absolute beginner to professional level players. There is no need to worry about being out of your depth as you will be placed in a small class that best suits the level of playing ability. Class numbers are small, 1-6, so as to ensure one to one attention and maximise student learning. Special arrangements are made for large orchestral and fiddle groups. A relaxed and informal class setting ensures a comfortable, supportive, fun and intensive learning environment is promoted.
Each musician will be taught how to play some of the tune types found in Irish music: reels, jigs, hornpipes, polkas and slow airs. It is envisaged that each musician will achieve a good command of the different tune types and be able to play them with a knowledge and awareness of the traditional style of playing.
The use of ornamentation and variation within the context of the tunes will be explored. Bowing techniques, phrasing and expression will be demonstrated.
Audio and written material will be used. Classes will be given in a relaxed and enjoyable fashion. Opportunity to join other musicians in an Irish music session.
