Seamus Egan’s masterclass was invaluable to me, a classically trained musician, in helping me to understand and play Celtic music in a correct style. Breaking down a tune step by step was useful to both novices and more advanced players. Seamus showed how multiple options of ornaments, dynamics and phrasing can be given for each measure in a tune, allowing freedom for the attendees to choose their own and begin to develop their personal style. He also gave many examples of how to play ornaments, slowing them down for the class to listen to and try on their own. Seamus’s kind manner and willingness to answer any questions posed by the attendees in the class was considerate, thoughtful, informative, and refreshing.” - Molly S.
