Explore the most common types of Irish dance tunes played at sessions, including polkas and slides, jigs, hornpipes, and reels. You will learn a core repertoire that you can revisit and embellish as you develop on the instrument. In this class, we will introduce you to Irish musical culture and encourage you to attend an authentic pub session or two!
