10 week course with tutor
Ruairí Cunnane

We can supply some instruments but if you have your own please bring it along.


The aim of this course is to learn how to accompany Irish music on the bouzouki. Chords and chord structures, strumming patterns and fingerpicking, counter melody and rhythm will all be examined throughout the course of the twelve lessons. Students will become familiar with the ideology behind traditional Irish music accompaniment: the role of the accompanist in duo or group playing and good session etiquette. Emphasis will be mainly on accompaniment, however counter melody will form an important part of the program. Students who complete this course will have a firm grounding in accompanying Irish music on the bouzouki.
