Brief course description

How to get into an Irish Music Session with confidence.

Take this course and play in Irish sessions instantly. No musical experience needed.

After studying this course you will want to go to an Irish session and sit it to see how it feels. If you want to just go and watch a few times that will work. You can always record the music (with permission) and practise at home before returning ready to play.

Ben Hewlett bio

Here’s how my courses are categorised in terms of subject, purpose and content. ‘Instant’ courses are simple tunes; ‘Learn Harmonica’ is the harmonica encyclopaedia for everyone; ‘Bones of the Blues’, ‘Get Chugging’, ‘101 Blues Riffs’, and ’60 Sonny Terry Riffs’ are the video taught versions of books I’ve written (you can google them) and the others are all about different techniques. I also have Celtic music courses for you.
