tunebook 12 tunes.

I’ve been playing the Irish flute for 12 years, and uilleann pipes for 9. Playing ITM , I’ve met very kind people who have been supportive when there wasn’t much to support. This makes a pleasant change from many previous things I’ve tried to learn. That sense of community is what I like the best about ITM. Learning by ear, and having the tunes by heart, instead of by head, has been the biggest challenge. I am reaching the point where I find that I know tunes I never learned, and I am more willing to lead, to sing, and even to pipe. Biggest influence to changing what I was doing and how, was going to a music camp and hearing Marcus Hernon live.
