From ‘Teaching Traditional Music: An Introduction’ – Music Generation Laois/Offaly/Westmeath

“A really thought-provoking approach to teaching traditional music, incorporating life skills development and personal development for students and teachers. Would recommend to anyone interested in teaching trad – to new and experienced teachers!”

“Very insightful 6 weeks. Liz encouraged us to consider our approaches to teaching traditional Irish music in a new, informative way. I learned a wealth of information and valuable tips. I feel equipped to teach the Irish traditional musicians of today effectively as a result.”
