Learn Folk Music By Ear



** There are spaces! **

Thursdays 6, 13, 20, 27 May, 10, 17, 24, June, 1, 8 July 2021


6:30-7:30pm - Intermediate 

For those new to playing by ear, or comfortable playing by ear but new to variations and stylistic details. There will be plenty of repetition for those who find the tunes harder, paired with lots of opportunity to try out style points, accompaniment, harmony!  


8:00-9:00pm - Advanced 

For those confident learning by ear and keen to learn what to do with the tunes and focus on style! For intermediate players who want more challneging tunes and advanced players who want to develop their style.  Again, there will be plenty of repetition for those who find the tunes harder, and lots of opportunity to try out style points for those who find them easier!  


The workshops are hosted on zoom. To join the class, you need the zoom app on a computer or tablet. Zoom is free and you don't need a subscription.


The paypal price includes £2 to cover Paypal's fee.

I'm running a series of workshops online, offering you a chance to learn new tunes, try variations and harmony, improve ear skills, or even just play with someone else from home.

All levels and all instruments welcome.  Audio, notation and catch up video supplied after class!
