B/C Accordion Foundations with Dáire Mulhern (view a free sample lesson on the free lessons page).

This course is suitable for those who have a basic understanding of the accordion. If you are familiar with the scales of C major, D major and G major, and already have a few tunes learnt in the Irish traditional style, then this is the course for you! Various types of tunes will be covered throughout the course: Polkas, Slides, Slip- Jigs, Jigs, Hornpipes and Reels- all of which are popular, well known, session tunes.

The first half of Dáire's course also introduces basic ornamentation skills - cuts and grace-notes, triplets and rolls. The second half focuses on variation and how to subtly change the ornamentation and melody of the tune for melodic and rhythmic interest. His methods are firmly rooted in the traditional ways of teaching Irish music; he breaks up the tunes into short phrases that he plays repeatedly, prompting the student to play with him after listening once or twice.
