Connection through Music
At Ivernia Music our work is all about connection. We are passionate about Irish and classical music, and we are committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities to people of all ages and walks of life through practical workshops, masterclasses and online courses. We believe that through learning Irish music and discovering classical music through conducting you can begin to connect to a whole world of musical adventure!
Whether you are at the beginning of your musical journey or you are a professional musician, we believe that the freedom and joy that comes with playing Irish music or (and!) learning to conduct can open up new horizons and possibilities for connection with new people, new genres of music and new levels of creativity and musical freedom.
Welcome to our site - have a look around, and drop us a line if you need any more information, we'd love to connect!
WHO WE ARE
Ivernia Music is led by Irish conductor and fiddle player Sinead Hayes. Alongside her growing career as a conductor of opera, orchestral and contemporary music, Sinead now wants to share her passion for Irish music, Irish fiddle and conducting with the world! It's certainly an unusual combination!!
She is passionate about the role of music in our lives and as a master fiddle player, she brings a unique perspective to her mission to share Irish music with the world through workshops, masterclasses and online courses. For more information on Sinead's conducting activities check out www.sineadhayes.net
During these uncertain, and challenging times I am offering anyone who is interested the chance to try conducting with a free lesson via Skype or Zoom. Many of us, myself included, are facing very challenging financial situations in the months ahead, so hopefully a half hour spent exploring some new musical territory might provide a welcome relief.
These times will pass, and we will emerge stronger.
WORKSHOPS, COURSES & SHEETMUSIC
We are constantly adding to our range of workshops and online courses. Keep in touch via our newsletter to hear about our new opportunities.
ONLINE CONDUCTING & FIDDLE LESSONS FOR ALL - BEGINNER TO ADVANCED MUSICIANS
I offer online lessons in conducting and Irish fiddle via the Skype or Zoom platforms. All levels welcome - from beginner to advanced musicians.
This is an uncertain time for all musicians. I will continue to provide free resources and lessons for as long as possible, but if you are in a position to support this work, I would be very grateful. I have also launched a range of subscription options via Patreon. This difficult time will pass and we will emerge stronger.
