For those with some experience under their belts, but who want a gentle immersion into session playing there is a six week course through the KC School of Irish Music. Learn tunes from Ireland, Scotland, the Shetland Islands, Galacia, Brittany, Cape Breton, and beyond.
Tuition is $120 for a six week class. A 10% discount for anyone who is a member of the Kansas City Irish Center.
Classes are for all ages, and all instruments. Students should have a basic facility with their instruments (advanced-beginner level). We will focus on aural learning.
