Hello, I’m Allan. I fell in love with traditional Irish music in late high school, around 2006. Since then I have attended many trad sessions and festivals here as well as in the UK and Ireland.
I’m also one-fourth of Tolka, a contemporary/trad band from Melbourne. You can hear me playing on the Tolka website or our YouTube channel. You can also like us on Facebook. See links below.
I focus on teaching traditional tunes by ear, but I can also cover ornamentation, melodic variations, and basic music theory in the lessons.
I teach from my house in Castlemaine, or I can come to you for a small extra charge.
Your first lesson is free!
I hope to hear from you soon,
