Traditional Music Classes at the Irish Club

On behalf of Comhaltas Winnipeg Susan Hammer (T.T.C.T. Ireland) is offering to lead an Irish Traditional Music session on the 2nd Friday of each month at one of the Irish Club's weekly pub nights. As this will be a specifically Comhaltas activity, the focus will be on "authentic Irish Style". The first hour will be a Slow Session focusing on "Irish Style" skill development,by playing tunes slowly and methodically under the guidance of Susan, with assistance from Paul and other experienced players who will be welcome to sit in and play to encourage and support the learners. The session will gradually evolve over the evening giving the more experienced players a chance to play their tunes, and for the less experienced, to learn by listening. Susan & Paul will also offer music instruction for children (adults also welcome) on whistle, bodhran, fiddle, guitar, mandolin etc. Email Susan Hammer at [email protected] if you are interested.

Paul and Susan would be willing to teach small groups of children interested in learning to play: whistle, bodhran, concertina, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, bodhran. Certain instruments require a minimum age of 7yrs but some instruments can be started younger. Parents/grandparents can sit in with the children and learn at the same time!
