Wednesday Workshops: New Series 2022

I will be offering a new series of workshops running January to April 2022, divided by level. Workshops will be offered for elementary, intermediate and advanced levels, and there will also be 2 stand-alone ‘special interest’ workshops over the course of the series.

Participants sign up for a course of 4 workshops at the appropriate level, one each month from January to April for a fee of €100. Workshops take place on Wednesdays 8.00-9.15pm Irish Standard Time (3.00-4.15pm Eastern)

An audio recording will be sent to participants in advance so you can familiarise yourself with the tune ahead of each workshop. The workshop itself will be taught by ear, live on zoom and will be video recorded with an access link sent afterwards so you can review at your leisure or catch up if you couldn’t make the live workshop. Sheet music will also be provided.

There will also be 2 ‘special intesest’ workshops, one on accompaniment and one on the collections of Edward Bunting. These are stand-alone workshops separate from the other series.
