The Lessons - What you'll get
Each Lesson boasts a range of customizable features to help students of all abilities on all instruments
A complete lesson taught by Caitlín. You can pause, rewind, fast-forward and watch it again. These video lessons are slow-downable and you can loop a section of the video for repeating – Very handy for practicing a particular phrase
Two slow-downable tracks of the tune where you can also loop a section for repeating – a great tool for practicing. I suggest listening to these tracks first, before starting the video lesson. It’s always good to have the tune in your head, before starting to learn it
Story Behind The Tune
Every tune has a story! Here we learn the background to the tune: where it comes from, the composer, reputable recordings of the tune and who first recorded it. This gives the tune context and depth, and a direct link to a region, player or both
This is where you get advice on how to learn better and how to be a better player, featuring tips for good practice and for aiming to achieve better rhythm, pulse and flow. Here I’ll also mention other tunes that might be commonly paired with it in a set/selection
Even though I teach the video lesson mainly ‘by ear’, and always encourage trying to learn Irish traditional music in this way, ABC and Staff notation is supplied and can be downloaded and printed
✓ New lessons added all the time.
✓ Lessons are graded.
✓ Competitively priced.
