Master Classes

This is a wonderful opportunity for all ages to learn new tunes, hone skills and develop technique on their instrument.

We will need to firm-up our numbers by Tuesday, September 8 in order to prepare enough food for lunches.

Lunch is provided to all students and during the second half of the lunch break, students will be treated to a recital by all instructors.

Classes this year will be offered on the following instruments (depending on demand, we may reduce or expand):

  • Button Accordion

  • Fiddle

  • Flute

  • Uilleann Pipes

  • Traditional Singing

  • Accompaniment (guitar/bouzouki)

  • Newfoundland Set Dancing

  • Step Dancing (Irish and Newfoundland)

*Please email us ASAP at to let us know what you are interested in or if you have questions!


Please try to show-up between 10:30 and 10:50 on Saturday so we can get everyone registered and settled away for classes to start on time at 11:00.  Tuition is $40/day and can be paid by cash, cheque or money order (sorry, we are unable to accept credit card or online payment at the moment).
