“An accurate and Faithful Notation for Performance”
The Book, Irish Traditional Music, Volume 1, (+ 2 CD’s) – Includes over 50 tunes: Dance tunes, Slow airs, O’Carolan in 3 parts.

Each tune is recorded at a student friendly pace, without ornamentation and on one single instrument.
This makes it much easier for the student to play along with the recording.
