“One of my passions is playing and teaching Irish traditional music on the Irish flute and tin whistle. This passion took me and my wife Deborah to live in Ireland in 05/06 while I earned my masters degree in Irish traditional music performance on the Irish flute from the University of Limerick. My online training library is the brainchild of a thought I had while living there.
Most of us don’t have the luxury of living down the road from an excellent Irish flute or tin whistle instructor. It’s one thing if you live in Ireland, New York, Boston or Chicago; if you live in the Netherlands or North Carolina, you’re mostly out of luck. My online training library bridges the gap by bringing my personal instruction to you through my website.”
