What could be more cosy and natural than learning some traditional songs face to face? If you’d like to experience a direct encounter with the songs, why not book some private lessons? You can choose to focus on Gaelic or Scots song, or both, and we’ll also talk about the historical background of the songs and guidance on vocal techniques.
Lessons can take place either at my home address in Eaglesham near Glasgow, which has a welcoming study full of music and books of song – or in the comfort of your own home. If you have any queries regarding arranging a private lesson please get in touch via the contact page.
