I saw the "Online Academy of Irish Music" has some GREAT Challenges going - has anyone checked them out?

Ran across a few videos of interest and looked to see what exactly they offered to learn.  They have some good instructors with the tunes listed that they teach, free trial period and a subscription fee if you wish to continue.

I seriously LOVE the group "Beoga" and just so happens their lead Fiddler, Niamh Dunne, teaches Fiddling Basics for them! 



Majella Bartley teaches Fleadh Fiddle tunes. 



Aidan O’Donnell teaches Fiery Fiddle tunes. 



Tola Custy teaches Clare Fiddle Styles. 


The Online Academy of Irish Music also has tutors for basic: Harp, Silver & Irish Flute, Low & Tin Whistle, Accordion, Concertina, DADGAD Guitar, Banjo & Irish Tenor techniques, Uillean Pipes, Bodhrán, Piano, Mandolin and Bouzouki (I may have missed some).   https://www.oaim.ie/courses/

The Online Academy of Irish Music's first #OAIM50 Challenge started in 2020 - they released a new set of 50 Irish Session Tunes Challenge this past January.  You can read more about it and the list of tunes being taught here:

Just had to show this one Wendy (Wend O'Lynn Irish Fiddle) did for the Challenge, "Molly Malone": 




If any of this info has been posted elsewhere, please let me know (I'm getting too old to remember). 🤪

I was enrolled for a while there.  Especially liked the vr sessions.  didnt use the "vr" part but the recordings are good.  They have alot of content than span multiple instruments.
