  1. Hi Caitlin,

    I didn’t realize you were a member here as I am very new to this world of concertinas. I took your starter course earlier this year...great stuff! I just now posted a question about the chording you do on Sunday’s Well, which I work on a bit every day. It’s such a lovely tune. Pointing me in the right direction would be a great help. Thank you!

  2. Hi folks, Caitlín Nic Gabhann here. I'm a concertina player from Ireland. I play a C/G Jeffries and am looking to expand my collection. I'd love to try out a G/D anglo. I'm not choosy on the make or age of the concertina. Hoping to try out a few before buying, if I can come across a few! Excited for this new venture. Caitlín www.caitlin.ie
  3. Hi all! Caitlín Nic Gabhann here. Just wanted to share here that I added an Advanced Course to my website of concertina lessons recently 👉 www.IrishConcertinaLessons.com 👈 Through 30+ tunes, I show you all my tricks: How I approach a tune How to get a good rhythm into your playing (bellows bellows bellows!) My approach to rolls, cuts and grace notes How to start adding chords, bass lines and rhythmic patterns ❗PLUS ❗ I want to help you develop your own style. So in this course, we figure out how you can add personality to your playing. Through a good use of the bellows, chords and ornamentation, we learn how you can start developing your own style of concertina playing that is unique to YOU. Not sure if you're a Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced? Try out my free sample lessons here, and see which level suits you 👉 https://www.irishconcertinalessons.com/free_lessons Since I started this website 2 years ago, learners of all ages (under 10 years old to over 80 years old!) and all levels have subscribed in 26 countries around the world. What's stopping you? Any questions? Just send me a message. I'm happy to help. Caitlín
  4. Hi all, My first time posting here! My name is Caitlín Nic Gabhann and I'm a concertina player from Ireland. I came on here because I've just launched a new website for learning the concertina online and I wanted to let you all know about it! There's a complete Starter Course on the website now - you can take the lessons any time you want, in your own home. Each lesson features: -- A video, and audio (both of which you can 'loop' a section for repeating - very handy for when you want to just repeat a particular phrase. Also - these are slow-downable) -- Staff and ABC notation (which you can download and print) -- Tips on technique from me (eg: which high D' to use) -- Notes on the Story behind the tune and more... There are also many other features on the website, such as suggested listening, tips if buying a concertina and. a free sample lesson. Here is the website so you can check it out: www.IrishConcertinaLessons.com - I recommend trying the free lesson to see if it's for you. I plan on adding an Improvers Course and an Advanced Course in 2019. Let me know what you think, Kindest regards, Caitlín
