How to Learn a Tune by Ear

It seems terribly intimidating and almost impossible at times—but don't give up! Every good Irish traditional musician learned to do it at some point or other, and we can all relate to your frustration. It's especially hard if you began by learning off of music (the dots, as many players call them). You'll find that most experienced musicians are much more forgiving of your learning curve than perhaps you are yourself, so don't let your embarrassment make you give up. All we can tell you is that you really truly will find that your playing will leap forward in huge amounts if you learn to learn by ear (called "learning aurally"). The advantages of learning aurally are many. Honest. In fact, some of the more snobbish Irish players look with scorn on other players who can only learn off the music (although using printed dots as a tool is usually seen as all right).

Traditional Irish Music and Dance on the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

– which is in itself an indication of the indigenous place music has in the life of the area. Both instrumental music and song have a long tradition on the Dingle Peninsula. In recent times, with the increasing international interest in Irish traditional music, the area has become a mecca for traditional music lovers to the extent that many roving musicians have come to settle in the area and have blended their talents with those of the local native musicians. For many years the music tradition of the area concentrated on the dance tunes played for the West Kerry Set Dance – mainly polkas, slides (single jigs) and, on occasion, hornpipes. The Kerry Polka reached the international stage with the famous duo performances of Séamus Begley and Steve Cooney.
