COMING IN JANUARY 2017: IRISH FLUTE AND PENNYWHISTLE CLASS AT THE FREIGHT AND SALVAGE in BERKELEY!!! More details to come…
UPDATE: I have just been hired to return to Lark Camp for the Summer of 2017 to teach the Irish Flute / Pennywhistle Ornamentation class again. Very excited and honored to continue teaching this class at the great musical Shangri-La that is Lark Camp! http://larkcamp.com/
Jason Pollack is an accomplished teacher (it’s his day job!). Coming from a classical background, and having training as a teacher, Jason is very adept at teaching the intricate subtleties of Irish flute and whistle playing. He works hard to meet each student at her/his particular level, adapting the tunes and techniques to suit them. The core of lessons is playing tunes, playing the music as soon as the first lesson. The joy of making music together is the essence of what makes Irish Traditional Music so great and special.
This summer (2016) Jason had the honor of being one of two Irish Flute teachers at the renowned Lark in the Morning World Music Camp. There, he taught Irish Flute & Pennywhistle ornamentation. Here’s the description of that class: http://www.larkcamp.com/StaffPages/JasonPollack.html.
