Calling all those who want to learn the Concertina: OAIM is pleased to announce the release of Edel Fox’s brand new Concertina Basics course. The first six lessons of this course are absolutely free, so log–in and get learning!

Edel covers all the rudimentary basics of how to play Irish music on the concertina; correct finger posture, the use of the air button, the use of alternate fingers, chords, basic ornamentation and the use of octave intervals. By the end of the course the learner will have a repertoire of seventeen Irish tunes that sit well on the concertina, as well as a deeper understanding of Irish traditional music.
