Irish Flute Skills

Irish Flute Skills is Kirsten's third OAIM flute course. The lessons are designed to follow on from her previous courses Flute Foundations and Flute Progressions.


She continues to explore ways of articulating, phrasing and ornamenting popular session tunes and presents exercises to aid tone, embouchure and breath control. Each video lesson is accompanied by downloadable notation and MP3’s.
Throughout the course, Kirsten teaches thirteen tunes including Reels: The Kilmaley Reel, The Peaceful Green Groves, Jim O’Donogues, Lady Ann Montogomery’s and The Mullinavat, Jigs: The Holly Bush, Garret Barry’s, and The Rookery, Waltz: ’The Munster Cloak’, Barndance: Pearl O’Shaughnessy’s and Slides: Kathleen O’Hehirs and Sweet Marie.


By the end of this course flute students will have a greater understanding of the rhythm of Irish dance tunes, and will continue to develop techniques that emphasis the rhythm, such as glottal stops, ornamentation and the breath. The student will also learn thirteen tasty session tunes that are well suited to the flute!
