Introduction to Tin Whistle for Kids

The Center for Irish Music 836 Prior Avenue North, Ste. 400, St. Paul
The tin whistle is a rewarding Irish instrument and a great fit for young musicians with small hands. Join Norah Rendell for a continuation of the Introduction to Tin Whistle for Kids that started in May 2022 (and ran through the summer with Iain Dove McAfee), designed for musicians going into Kindergarten to grade 2. Norah will teach your child how to play polkas, marches, jigs and songs. Hands-on parental support is needed for regular practice at home.


Redwing Intermediate Ensemble

The Center for Irish Music 836 Prior Avenue North, Ste. 400, St. Paul
The Redwing Ensemble class is an intermediate level mixed-instrument ensemble. Directed by Hannah Flowers, students will learn tunes and arrange them in sets to perform together as a group. This class has a strong focus on building ensemble skills including playing fluently, adding variations, listening to each other, maintaining excellent rhythm, using simple harmonies, preparing for performance, increasing knowledge of traditional Irish music, and having fun with each other and the music!


Irish Pub Songs

Hybrid Event 836 Prior Avenue South, St. Paul
This Fall, we will offer two sections of this class so students can participate remotely and in person at CIM. Please select "IPS22Fall-ONLINE" or "IPS22Fall-INPERSON" when registering.

Pub songs are raucous, tuneful, and above all, fun! But like the most intricate reel, you need skill and a concentrated approach to play and sing them well. Todd will teach the vocal techniques and rhythmic strategies needed to help you stand and deliver these wonderful ballads and drinking songs. All instruments encouraged.
