Our Irish Youth Band is an ensemble program for young people to learn to play traditional Irish music. The ensembles are grouped according to the age and skill level of the students. The Irish Youth Bands have 2 public concerts each year, plus several volunteer performances for local festivals and events around the Metroplex. .
The curriculum in our Houston Irish Youth Band includes:
- ensemble groups based on skill and age that learn traditional Irish dance music
- public performances in lively settings
- instruction on playing music in a group without a conductor
- a chance to learn the history and traditions of Irish music, the stories of some of its greatest players, and an opportunity to meet some of them as well
- fun making music with friends
Group Instrument Lessons
New for this year, based on interest, we will be offering group instrument classes on fiddle and whistle. Group classes are a great way to work on Irish music on your acoustic instrument and learn ensemble playing.
Our instructors also welcome private lessons for the children in the school as well as adults. Times can be arranged based on mutual convenience.

Playing Irish music has a way of connecting people in ways they didn’t know possible. When you get together with others to play Irish music, you’re not just playing music, you’re building a community of friends, often for life!
