Go raibh maith agat, Kathleen


Always a Song
Mon 2 - Thu 5 Jun
Tutor: Kathleen O'Sullivan
APPROXIMATE STANDARD: ELEMENTARY INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED

Resident: £365.00 Non-resident: £290.00 Code: 14/326

Says our tutor, Kathleen O’Sullivan: “From the Irish singing tradition. Simple, inclusive and practical. A rich variety of material, in what is known as sean nós style, at once ancient and timeless. Exploring the nature and poignancy of unaccompanied song, while experimenting with the vocal techniques, timbre,
phrasing and ornamentation inherent in this type of native style. Mostly taught by ear, but guided in view of the comfort, confidence, ability and most of all, enjoyment, of the students.” You’ve just got to come, haven’t you?
