Classic Repertoire

Each month a new tune will be added to develop everyone's repertoire regardless of the instrument you play

The Classic Repertoire series will grow and develop over time to be a stock or bank of tunes that are commonly played across the country and beyond.

Regardless of what instrument you play, you can play along to the tunes at different tempos, to gain confidence in playing them.

Many of the tunes are taught elsewhere on the site, should you wish to learn them in detail. Although they may be taught on a different instrument from the one you are used to playing, quite often the tips are transferable.
