Anglo playing guidance needed in Teaching and Learning Posted January 22, 2019 I am a great fan of the Online Academy of Irish Music for their systematic approach to learning all the detailed ornamentation to play Irish Trad. Those skills would carry nicely into American fiddle tunes as well. They build skills starting with very simple tunes and giving you the opportunity to read music and also learn to play by ear. There are 4 extremely good teachers who build on each others teaching in the concertina courses. It is about $20 a month, which may seem pricey, but you can take as many lessons a month as you have time for, cancel for a while and go back at it later. A private teacher once a week would cost far more than that.
