This beginner level class is perfect for first-time musicians. Students will learn the basics of traditional music in a classroom setting.
We offer tuition in a range of instruments including:
The intermediate class builds on the skills acquired in the beginner class. Students will continue working with their instrument and learning more tunes. Participation in Competitions is supported at this stage, but is not mandatory.
We have very a talented and highly regarded teaching team that will also work for Advanced Students interested in mastering their instruments and thriving in Fleadh Competition. Jason McGuinness is one of Ireland's leading young fiddle players and has been a great asset to our branch as a teacher and Grupa Ceoil / Ceilí Band mentor.
We're fortunate to have his sister Lorna also with us now on flute and whistle, as well as some outstanding young musicians from Maynooth Uni and piping luminary Matt Bashford.

In general Beginner lessons will start at 7, followed by Intermediate at 7:40 and Improved / Advanced at 8:20.
