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.

Free Monthly Acoustic Guitar Club

Second Thursday of Every Month at 7pm

The Acoustic Guitar Club is free and open to all ages and playing abilities. Bring your guitar and play along with other acoustic guitar players at all levels. Your host teacher, Eric Enberg, will introduce several new songs each month and expose you to various skills related to the material. Eric strives to provide the materials that address players at different playing levels. Materials are provided free of charge.
