Our weekly music classes resume on Saturday, 15th September, in Anahorish Primary School. Registration for the classes will take place in the school on Saturday, 8th September, between 10:30am and 11:30am. It’s important that anyone hoping to attend our classes (including returning pupils) comes along to the registration morning to both guarantee their place and to facilitate the timetabling of the classes for the following week.
We’re currently offering classes in tin whistle/flute, fiddle, banjo/mandolin, concertina, harp, bodhran and piano accompaniment. Subject to demand, we may also consider arranging classes in other instruments, so email email@example.com or send a pm on our Facebook page with any suggestions or queries – committee members will also be available to advise at the registration morning. All abilities, including beginners, will be catered for in all of our classes and a small number of instruments may be available to hire. The all-ability classes in concertina and banjo/mandolin will start at 10:30am each week. The bodhran class will be at 11:15am as will the classes for both beginner and improver fiddle. The class timetable for tin whistle/flute and harp/piano accompaniment will be finalised following registration.

Family – £18
