The school Banna Ceoil has been divided into 2 groups this year. The beginners, and children who are playing for a year at least are coming together on Monday from 2.00-.2.30 every week. The children are divided by instrument, with Múinteoir Caoilfhionn teaching the concertina, Múinteoir Caroline teaching the button accordion and Múinteoir Caitríona teaching the fiddle. We are delighted with the amount of new players this year and they are making great progress!
The senior Banna Ceoil rehearses on a Wednesday after school (2.30-3.15). We have a mixture of instruments- concertina, tin whistle, accordion and fiddle, and all the children are practicing hard to prepare for the first performance of the year!
If anybody is interested in joining the Banna Ceoil it is important to note that the children must be playing an instrument for a minimum of a year at least if their instrument is the violin. There are raw beginners involved in Monday group who are learning concertina or accordion from 1st Class upwards.It is important for parents to understand that children who have additional lessons at Comhaltas or privately outside of school, generally progress much more rapidly in the Banna Ceoil. All Enquiries should be made to the aforementioned teachers, who will do their best to accomodate new members.
