Private Online Music Lessons

I am now offering beginner and intermediate level on-line lessons using Zoom for Tin Whistle, Irish Flute, Uilleann pipes, and Anglo Concertina.

I don’t have a fixed teaching curriculum. My focus is entirely on learning your goals, understanding your challenges, identifying areas to work on, and then giving you the feedback and specific tools you can use to take your playing to the next level.

I started out playing classical flute when I was 6 years old. I’ve now been playing Uilleann pipes, flute, and whistle in sessions for over 20 years and Anglo Concertina for 15 years. My concertina playing is based on the style and technique I learned from Noel Hill at his workshops.

I’ve taught the Saturday morning new players’ Bootcamp for many years at the annual Southern California Uilleann Pipers Club tionóls, as well as have taught both private and small group lessons on a variety of instruments.

I also have many tune teaching videos for tin whistle on YouTube that I posted much earlier (2006-2010) in my traditional Irish music experience.

They can be found by clicking here.

Before COVID-19, I was the co-host of the weekly session for over 20 years at The Ould Sod Pub in San Diego, CA as well in the paid hosting rotation for the session at The Auld Dubliner in Long Beach, CA.  Since COVID-19 restrictions went into place, I’ve been hosting a weekly session on Tuesday nights on Zoom that has turned into a lovely and consistently popular event.

If you are interested in taking lessons, lets talk and see if I'm a good match for you.

After an initial free consultation, my rate is $45.00 for a 45-minute lesson.
