Music classes

Young people 6–18 years

Music classes for young people run on Monday evenings (in term time) from 7pm to 9.30pm. They are currently held at the Emerald Centre, Gypsy Lane, Leicester (see maps)

The young people receive individual and group tuition from our two highly experienced teachers of traditional Irish music. It is quite amazing how quickly the youngsters learn - they soon start to sound impressively accomplished. This valuable musical experience is not the only benefit - socially, it's a lot of fun too!

 

The cost is £3.50 per child per week (£3.00 for younger siblings). FIRST TASTER LESSON FREE!

 

Beginners generally start learning the whistle and progress on to other instruments. There is an instrument lending scheme to help keep the costs down.

 

Tuition is given in Whistle, Flute, Fiddle, Button Accordian, Piano Accordian, Banjo and Mandolin.

 

Youngsters are also encouraged to take part in the monthly sessions, where they have the chance to play alongside more experienced musicians. 

Our young learners have the opportunity to take part, as individuals or in groups, in the Midland Regional Fleadh, held at Princethorpe School, near Rugby, in April. Success at this event means qualification for the All Britain Fleadh, and from there possibly even to the All Ireland. Every year a few of our young people find themselves playing at the All Ireland Fleadh.
