Learning to Play Together – CANCELLED

Online Event
If you are a student who has learned a few tunes, but still feel like you are in over your head when playing with a group, this is the class for you!

You don’t have to be able to play “at speed” or perfectly, the class will accommodate the participants’ skill levels as they progress to the inherent joys of playing music with other people. While our lessons are being conducted online, we will focus on playing with an accompanist or following another melody player. Melody instruments only.


Wren Intermediate Ensemble

The Center for Irish Music 836 Prior Avenue North, Ste. 400, St. Paul
This ensemble is for learning to play together with fellow musicians, challenging one another to learn new tunes and belt them out with great rhythm and style. This ensemble will meet in person and will focus on playing together with other accompaniment and melody players. As a group, the Wren Intermediate Ensemble is non-competitive. Taught by flute player and guitarist Iain Dove McAfee.
