EXCELLENT HOME STUDY COURSE    based on the best-selling fiddle tutorial books by Denis Sweeney     GET STARTED TODAY!

"Exactly what I was looking for...a quality product and the programme is the best I've seen. I have bought several other tutor-plus-CD tutorials,but these are as good as having a teacher in the room."  (C. O'Neill, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland)

"Your product has far exceeded my expectations. When I listen to Mr. Sweeney, I feel as though I'm sitting in his class. Up until now, I've spent about 6 months learning fiddle (from other books) but oh how I wish I had started with Denis Sweeney's Unit 1. The tips and advice are worth their weight in gold. Thank you again for such a wonderful product."  (S. Smith, N. Carolina, USA)

Denis Sweeney (Donncadh Mac Suibhne) from Randalstown, Co. Antrim, was a long-time fiddle teacher whose students have won many awards at Fleadh Cheoil etc. He created a series of four tutorial books of practice pieces for his students, plus a book of Slow Airs. Later recorded all those tunes, plus his learner's tips and tricks, for so that it offers a complete self-teaching fiddle course for those who do not have a local traditional Irish fiddle teacher, or who just want to improve their skill and widen their repertoire. A familiarity with music notation is useful, but reading notes is taught from Unit 1. The books contain, in total, hundreds of useful session tunes from all parts of Ireland (and beyond), which will enable you to play along with other traditional musicians wherever you go. You can buy the course units 1-4 (a book and accompamying CD) individually or as a complete set. The book and CD of Slow Airs is a popular extra, as collected notation and recordings of these melodies is very hard to get.

Denis Sweeney's Books and CDs are now available only from Johnny Murphy at Braid River Violins, 50 Princes St, Ballymena BT43 5EB Co. Antrim.
