Lesson 2

In the Performance Focus section I will show you how to play my original compositions and arrangements.

Each piece is taught in bite size sections and slowed down so you can see what my hands are doing up close. I’ll explain how the pieces and arrangements were created and along the way we’ll study a variety of styles from traditional Celtic to blues, jazz and beyond!
