New website from The Online Academy of Irish Music (OAIM)

Based in Liscannor, Co. Clare, The Online Academy of Irish Music (OAIM) is about to bring online Irish music tuition well and truly up to date with the launch of a new website ahead of St Patricks Day. The new site makes navigating through the ever-growing library of courses, lessons and support materials even easier than before, as well as being PayPal, iPad and iPhone friendly.

It has been over a year since OAIM took it’s first baby steps onto the platform of the worldwide web. In that time, it has mushroomed in size from six courses to nineteen -
equalling over 250 online Irish music lessons! OAIM now has over 5000 members from all around the world, a team of twelve high calibre tutors and lots of exciting new courses and ventures planned for the coming year.

The highlights of OAIM’s first year of internet life have been the launch party in April which was broadcast live from Gus O’Connor’s pub in Doolin to an online audience of 12,000, and  being chosen by Clare County Enterprise Board as one of three finalists from the county for the ‘National Enterprise Awards’.

OAIM has become the main hub for learning Irish music online, where students from all over the world converge to access Irish music tuition, discuss their lessons and progress and meet with one and other in the classroom chat forums. Online Irish music lessons are now available for fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, anglo-concertina,
bouzouki, tenor banjo, bodhrán, piano and song.
