Concertina: Beginners/Basic
Douglas Barr, Tuesday 7 pm – 8 pm
$170 general / $140 member

8 weekly sessions beginning Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

The Beginners/Basic class will be oriented toward beginners on the anglo concertina. It will also be suited for those who can play a few notes and even a few tunes. We will learn some simple tunes, review scales and ornamentation, and cover the basic fingering choices which are unique to the concertina. Tunes will be taught by ear, standard notation and ABC will also be provided. If you need help learning to read music we will cover that too. We will also be listening to selected recordings of the great players. All ages are welcome. Bring your concertina and some kind of audio recorder. Be ready to have some fun!

No concertina? No problem! We have a limited number of concertinas available to rent for a small fee.

Please note this is not at Irish Arts Center | Location: 244 W 54th St. (between 7th and 8th Ave.) New York, NY 10019. Please check-in with the front desk attendant for your room.

This class requires an instrument. Advance notice is required for a rental. After you sign up for the class contact Doug Barr, dbarr15@aol.com, to let us know if you would like to rent an instrument.
