New Online Irish Fiddle Basics Course at

The Online Academy of Irish Music

OAIM proudly presents a brand new beginner’s fiddle course taught by Beoga Fiddler, Niamh Dunne. The first six lessons of this course are absolutely free, so log in and get learning!. These videos are all in HD and have been enhanced with animated graphic diagrams to enhance your on–line learning experience.

The first six lessons teach the student how to hold the instrument, proper posture, bowing technique and two easy tunes. In the subsequent twelve lessons there is a progressive study of fingering, bowing and ornamentation. Niamh emphasises tempo, rhythm and tone when teaching the tunes. The ‘Fiddle Basics’ course will equip the beginner fiddle player with fourteen great tunes along with the necessary rudiments to start the adventurous journey down the road of Irish fiddle playing. We are convinced that learning the fiddle with these innovative lessons couldn’t be made easier!

Lessons also available for flute, whistle, concertina, accordion, piano accordion, harp, guitar, bouzouki, song, uilleann pipes, banjo, bodhrán and piano.
