You Know How to Learn Irish Music, Don’t You?

You’ve gone to the local traditional Irish music sessions and you’ve watched all the musicians plucking away on guitar or tootling on a whistle or flute. And you’ve surely said to yourself: “I really wanna do that!” 

Hey … now you can!

The Delaware Valley Branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann will be sponsoring a 10-week series of classes in traditional Irish music at the Philadelphia Irish Center starting Wednesday, September 17.

Here’s the class schedule:

6:30 p.m. – Beginner/intermediate tin whistle and flute
7:15 p.m.- Intermediate/advanced tin whistle and flute
8:00 p.m.- DADGAD (a kind of tuning) guitar accompaniment of traditional Irish dance tunes

Don’t have a whistle? You can buy one at the first class.

The class costs $70 if you’re a member of CCE, and $110 if you aren’t. If two family members hold membership in CCE-DV and are taking classes, the cost is $60 each. If three or more family members are taking classes, the cost is $50 each.
