>> The primary purpose of this event is tune learning, NOT instrument training. Therefore intermediate+ skill level required. Also this is NOT a traditional Irish music session so we will focus on learning announced tunes rather than exploring random tunes brought by attending musicians.

>> Both Classically trained sight readers and learner-by-ears are welcome:
- The sheet music will be brought up in a large screen. The sheet music comes with chord markings.
- We will start to play very slow, break down into details as required, and then speed up to the VERY FAST tempo as the group plays competently.

>> RSVP required. Please send your instrument and your contact information. Exact address will be provided upon your positive RSVP via phone or email.

Looking forward to playing with you!
