Celtic Music Group Class
This group is a lot of fun! Open to any musical instrument and voice, the group is studying traditional Dance music of Ireland, Scotland, England, Cape Breton, Canada and New England!
Because we play from sheet music out of books or downloaded off the internet, students should be able to sight-read music, and know the basics of music theory including counting various meters, playing chords and harmonizing. If you would like to learn more about these subjects, join the Beginner's Music Class on Mondays at 7pm, or register for private lessons.
The class meets Thursdays from 7-9pm at my home in Granby, MA. The group decides what folk music it wants to learn, votes on the new material, and works on approximately 10-15 new tunes/melodies per semester. A semester is approximately 3 months. Any folk or roots music genre is acceptable. Some of the tunes we have been working on can be found in the Fiddler's Fakebook by Dan Brody, the Portland Collection by Susan Songer, and the Waltz Books.
