Foinn / Tunes

Listed here are the tunes currently being played in the Cavan Town Branch Youth Session. If you point the cursor at “Foinn/Tunes you will find there is a drop down menu, listing 4 different levels of tunes. There are the Level 1 Beginners and when the musician can play these tunes, with confidence, solo, then they can move onto Level 2. Level 3 tunes includes advanced jigs, hornpipes, flings and barn dances and Level 4 includes reels.

If you are just starting to play it is a good idea to find a teacher to get yourself started. Don’t be put off by the long list of tunes. Some of the members have been attending the sessions for over a year maybe two. Everyone has to start somewhere. If you play your instrument every day you will be very pleasantly surprised at how quickly your collection of tunes will grow.

Come into the sessions even if you think you don’t have enough tunes. Listening to the tunes is the first step to learning. Bring along your instrument and get to know everyone. Most of all enjoy your music!
