This informal and informative workshop will place a strong emphasis on learning repertoire, both Irish tunes and others. According to the instructor, "We also hope to explore technique and ornamentation: to fully use ornamentation to its best capacity, we must first learn to recognize what it is and how we are doing it. It will be good fun for all!"

*This workshop is open to novice-intermediate players. David will be teaching on a C#/D accordion.
