The aim of this course is to bring the wealth of experience and knowledge of Danny O ‘Mahony to the student. Throughout these master classes, Danny provides continuous attention to detail on the fundamental requirements of accordion playing such as Instrument control, Finger Technique, Rhythm & Phrasing, Basses, Ornamentation and Variation.
At the core of these master classes is a focus on instilling in the student a value and appreciation of our Traditional Irish Music & its Masters. This is the vital phase in any musician’s development, as it will influence their stylistic choice and musical direction in the future.
Through interactive practice led research each pupil will build and expand their knowledge base. Utilizing audio and visual aids they will develop an understanding and respect for past and current masters of our tradition and their influential contributions and legacies.
