We teach traditional Irish music and singing in a fun environment with many opportunities for  performing music and playing with others even early on in the learning process. Our focus is on getting students a jumpstart in playing their instrument so they can enjoy their instrument and the music. Students of classical music who just aren't having fun in a classical program find joy in music once again while playing trad music -- it's lively, social and exciting. Our students compete successfully on the world stage, many are world title holders.

Do you like to travel? We offer annual opportunities to play music in Ireland, plus opportunities for travel to Irish music conventions and competitions within North America. Instruments taught include violin/fiddle, flute, voice, harp, banjo, mandolin, guitar, concertina, button accordion, Irish whistle and more. Starter instruments are typically available for rent or purchase. We teach on Saturdays but have activities on other days, as well.
