Bouzouki Lessons from OAIM
A foreign descendant of the guitar, the Bouzouki is quite simply one of the most mesmerising instruments around. Its low-pitch, sharp metallic sound make this finely-stringed instrument a real delight to play. Often seen as the newcomer, its presence delivers an exciting dimension to Irish music. Our 19 Irish Bouzouki lessons are designed with the beginner in mind, before delivering a follow-on course, giving you tools and techniques you need to explore this limitless instrument.
Our talented Irish Bouzouki tutor will simply and expertly guide you to become a competent and established bouzouki musician.
