School Tunes

Each of our instrumental music students will be learning tunes from our master list throughout each quarter. This will make it easier for beginning students to participate in our slow session with intermediate students and advanced players. In addition, the tunes our students will learn are played at many sessions around the state and around the world, so learning these sets will bring you one step closer to being comfortable playing in a session! Please visit our Indiana sessions page for information about sessions. 


If you'd like to hear examples of sean-nós singing, please visit Lydia Campbell-Maher's faculty page for recordings of her singing!


For more tunes played slowly, visit our Slow Tunes page!
