Irish Tunes for All Melody Instruments
Traditional Irish sessions, held at a local pub, are a fun and exciting way get into the music and meet new people, but before you can play, you gotta learn some tunes! In this class, we'll learn classic and popular tunes that will get you playing in your local session in no time. We'll also learn how to add style and ornamentation to the tunes to get you that perfect Irish lilt. Lastly we'll work on putting together sets (a medley of tunes).
Darcy Noonan started her violin career at age 7 in Berkeley, California. She studied classical music and supplemented it with weekly Irish dance classes. Years later she combined the two and began playing Irish fiddle. Darcy was lucky enough to have supportive parents with an extensive Irish music library and had many great artists to influence her including Frankie Gavin, Liz Carroll, Tommy Peoples and John Carty among many others. After high school she travelled around Ireland and found a second home in Galway City where she honed her music style and got to meet and play with many of her childhood idols. Now Darcy spends most of her time in the San Francisco Bay Area, performing, teaching violin and experimenting with new styles of music.
