Here you can learn Irish traditional tunes slowly, methodically and correctly with drones and metronomes all in one place. In this project I record as many tunes as I know in both slow and faster tempo.I use Henrik Norbeck's ABC and thesession.org for the sheetmusic.
10 Essential Exercises For Irish Flute Playing
On your left you'll find the different tunetypes. (on mobile you'll find them in the menu)
The tunes are listed in the order they were recorded.
Use ctrl + f on those pages to search as long as you know what tunetype you're looking for.
Bodhrán metronome & Drones is to the right, (on mobile you'll find them in the menu).
They will help you play on time, play in pitch, improvise or meditate.
Use the Circle of Fifths to help you practice any scales you want!
The tunes are played as I learnt them and are not always played as the score says.
In some tunes my dear friend Troels Kærgaard Vanghøj is playing.
The speed of the tunes can be changed if you listen to the youtube versions.
The lyrics in the songs are not definitive in any way.
I can give you private lessons in the following instruments:
Irish Transeverse Flute
Guitar & Bouzouki
Fiddle (Beginner & Irish ornamentation)

I live in Malmö, Sweden. Just give me a call or send an email!
Give Your Support
It takes a lot of time and energy to maintain the website, record the tunes, play them properly and clearly, arrange a good and interesting accompaniment, edit, mix and master the tunes, create drones and metronomes, play the metronomes in time, write a flute school in three languages, create a flute school video for each exercise, create videos for each tune for youtube and maintain my own level of playing.
So... If you find good use of this website, the tunes, the exercises. Or if you like the music I make or just want to help a fellow out you are more than welcome to send a contribution or buy some of the music I make via the links at the top or below.
Thank You so much for your support!
