Discovering the Joy of Traditional Irish Musical Instruments.

Music is a huge part of Irish heritage, and there are very few occasions when someone will not play a traditional musical instrument. There are several traditional instruments to choose, including the Bodrum, tin whistle and Irish flute. However, it is the fiddle that appeals to many people, and demand to learn this fascinating and fun instrument is increasing.

Learning the fiddle will take commitment, and you will soon realise that it is not as easy as you may think. However, there are some excellent teaching programmes and academies available, to ensure that you learn the correct way to play the fiddle. This musical instrument is identical to a violin, but the playing style is very different.

From the moment that you pick your fiddle up, you will fall in love, and want to entertain everyone with your music. There are some complicated aspects that you will need to learn, however, every stage is fun and will introduce music to your life. Fiddle lessons are available through specialist teachers, including online academies.

That's why I'm such a huge fan of the Corrs. Everyone in the family plays a musical instrument. When they play together, it's magic.
