OAIM provides a well-structured and progressive approach to technique and ornamentation

"The OAIM's Flute Foundations course with Kirsten Allstaff is probably the best wooden flute tuition I have come across (and thats compared with private lessons and group workshops). As well as some great tunes, it provides a well-structured and progressive approach to technique and ornamentation. Thoroughly recommended!"

OAIM Uillean Piping Courses

Intermediate Uilleann Piping Technique

Over the course of twelve lessons, four tunes will be examined in detail. The first lesson in each set of three will introduce the tune with basic technique; this will be followed by a lesson looking at tune specific technique and variation; a basic approach to regulator and drone playing will then be given. The classes are not designed to increase repertoire but rather to focus on technical aspects of piping.
