Calling all those who want to learn the Concertina: OAIM is pleased to announce the release of Edel Fox’s brand new course ‘Irish Concertina Skills’. The first lesson of this course is absolutely free, so log–in and get learning! These videos are all in HD and have been enhanced with animated graphic diagrams to enhance the on–line learning experience. Edel’s course is aimed at the more experienced Concertina learner. Thirteen tunes are examined with each focused on a specific technique. These techniques are discussed, demonstrated and developed throughout the lessons.

This course will help learners develop skills on the concertina that are transferable to tunes already featured in the learners repertoire. Notation is provided as well as a downloadable mp3’s of each of the tunes played slowly. We are convinced that learning the concertina with Edel and these innovative lessons couldn’t be made easier!
