Wednesday Workshops: New Series Fall 2023

I will be offering another series of workshops running late August to November 2023, with a separate series offered for intermediate and advanced levels. I will also be offering a new workshop series on Irish Airs which is suitable for mixed levels – you can find out more about that below.

Participants sign up for a course of 4 workshops at their chosen level/topic, one every 3 weeks, 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.
