Who We Are

We are musicians, educators, authors, composers, and storytellers.  We first collaborated in the late ‘90s, when Súle helped choreograph the Teacher’s Talent Show, and Meg helped transcribe minstrel song melodies.

Why We Are Different

We offer a new method to make learning to play an instrument fun and satisfying.

We offer a combination of a written method book, combined with online video demonstrations and tutorials that get you playing fast!

We also offer a subscription for you to receive a fun Tune of the Month, given to you in at least two playing levels: Beginner, and More Funky.
