Free Monthly Irish Slow Learning Circle
Third Thursday of Every Month at 6pm
A learning circle (or Ceoltais) is a traditional style of learning tunes. It offers the new-to-Irish-music person the chance to hear tunes played in the style and learn them without concern about making mistakes. In a Ceoltais, unlike a regular session, all players are encouraged to play every tune no matter the tempo. Feel free to make mistakes, ask questions, and experiment at trying to find the pitches and rhythms. Yes, "dots" (sheet music) are allowed, but the ultimate goal is to pick up new tunes by ear and perform by ear.
