Teaching Philosophy

Sean Nós singing is best learned by ear, sung solo, in Irish, unprocessed, with respect for the history of the song and Ireland. It's about the song - not the singer. No experience needed. The best way to learn is by doing !
It is a connection to the language and ways of your ancestors, and I am sure they would approve.
