Product Description


An Fheadóg Mhór by Conal Ó Gráda
Widely regarded as the best Irish flute tutor available.
  • Build technique progressively from basic breathing to advanced articulation.
  • Step by Step: What does it sound like…How do you do it…Where do you use it
  • Comprehensively illustrated with both notation and audio examples (free CD inside)
  • Learn how to listen critically to top players and improve your own playing.

Features playing from:
Catherine McEvoy, Harry Bradley, Aoife Granville, John Wynne, Tara Diamond, Mike Rafferty, Patsy Hanly, Eamonn Cotter

Based on the premise that ‘If you can’t hear it, you can’t play it’, Conal takes a progressive approach to building the students flute technique (What does it Sound like…How is it done…Where is it Used), starting with the basics (Holding the flute, Breathing, Cuts etc.) and working up to more advanced techniques (Glottal Stops, Rolls and combining of techniques), supported with both Audio and Notated examples. A unique aspect of the book is the chapter on Critical Listening, where the student is taught how to build their listening skills to recognise how top players achieve the musical impact they do.

Reviews for An Fheadóg Mhór by Conal Ó Gráda


“Conal’s book is concise, and brilliant, and tells a story too.”

Chiff & Fipple

“Conal O'Grada's book is excellent, especially the section on close listening”

"Conal O’Grada’s [...] tutor, for whatever reason, totally makes sense to me. It demystifies a bunch of things, and it’s already making a mighty difference in my playing."
