Music Lessons for Children
Comhaltas Sydney will be offering group Irish Music lessons for children on Saturday afternoons for 8 classes*, from 4 Feb – 1 April 2023. (*no class on Saturday 25 Feb 2023)
Children from age 7 upwards playing all melody instruments are welcome. Payment is $120 and can be made in advance through bank deposit (see link below to contact form) or by credit card on arrival for the first lesson.
Lessons are held in The Gaelic Club, level 1 / 64 Devonshire Street, Surry Hills, NSW.
Each week a new tune or two will be taught, as well as some instrumental technique as appropriate and the skills required to play together as a group.
All levels of musical experience/training are welcome as tunes will be chosen appropriate to the level of each student.
Classes will be taught by experienced Irish Traditional musicians and teachers.
Can my child participate if they are a complete beginner?
Yes! We have a stock of tin whistles and will provide one to any child in this first block of lessons who does not yet play an instrument.
Can my child participate if they are already an advanced violin/flute/etc student? Yes! Our tutors are experienced at engaging all levels of learners. Once there are enough students involved, we may decide to split into groups by experience/ability.
What should my child bring to class?
Their instrument, a plastic display folder for keeping sheet music and/or written notes. A device (such as a mobile phone) for making recordings of new tunes to practice along with at home is also helpful but not essential.
