*       Slow Celtic Session – Tom Tunney, Host. Please join us from 10-12 am on the first Saturday of the month for a guaranteed SLOW Celtic session. The tune list will be limited to about a dozen tunes at a time so we can learn them from memory. We will work on how to learn the tunes using recordings and sheet music as well as various resources available online. It’s not necessary to know how to read music, but we will spend some time learning that if anyone is interested. All instruments are welcome, but you should be able to play at least at a beginner’s level. This will be a regular session every month continuing on the first Saturday of each month.
First Saturday of every month         10:00am - 12:00pm          Fee: Donation


*       Music Reading and Theory – Danielle Frabutt, Instructor. Have you ever wanted to learn to read music? Whether you are beginning to pick up an instrument, beginning to sing, or just want to explore the expressive language of music, this class is for you. Flutist, Danielle Frabutt will help you to learn and understand the basics of Rhythm and Melody reading and writing. By the end of the 4 weeks you will have the tools to write your own basic melody and apply simple chords to accompany yourself. This class is designed for those who have no prior music reading experience or those who'd like to refresh what they may have learned in years past.

Freelancing throughout Albuquerque and New Mexico, Danielle performs in a variety of genre: from Classical to Irish she has been seen on stage with the New Mexico Philharmonic, the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra, Liz Madden -Irish and folk singer/songwriter, Altura Wind Woodwind Trio, Quintessence Choral Artists of the Southwest, and many others.

*       Third Saturday Celtic Session - Tom Tunney, host. Please join us on the third Saturday afternoon of every month for an open Irish Session. All skill levels are welcome! This session is designed for anyone who wants to learn and practice Celtic tunes. We will start with a set list that contains about 100 common session tunes and we will add new ones when we master the first group. Basic session etiquette will be discussed and followed, but we will play at any easy tempo that is slower than a typical session, and the tunes will be repeated numerous times. The use of sheet music is welcomed, but memorizing tunes is encouraged. Click here for the set list. We hope you will take the set list with you to work on, and we will discuss resources that are available to help you learn the tunes at home. Looking forward to seeing you on the 3rd Saturday of every month!
