The Irish tradition is rich in singing with thousands of native love songs, pub songs, songs of immigration, songs in Irish (Gaeilge) and songs in English. Here at OAIM we have forty tutorials packed with a rich variety of songs for you to learn. From well known lively pub songs to Irish songs from the Sean-Nós Tradition or ballads of historical significance.
‘Traditional Song’ ( English language) and ‘Songs in Irish’ are both taught by Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, one of the most well known and influential singers in Ireland today. ‘Popular Irish Pub Songs’ is taught by West Clare singer and guitarist Jon O’Connell. He also teaches the guitar accompaniment along with these songs.
OAIM song tutorials focus on enunciation, tone, techinque, phrasing and breathing. By taking these lessons, you will also gain a richer knowledge of Irish culture and tradition.
All of our tutors are Irish music professionals carefully selected for individual mastery in their instruments and proven ability in teaching their craft. All our courses follow the traditional way of learning Irish music, using the ‘phrase by phrase’ technique for teaching tunes while watching the tutor to learn good technique. Using this time-honoured, proven system of Irish musical tuition, combined with the latest technology (Virtual Reality anyone?!), we bring Irish music tuition to you, wherever you are in the world.
