Caitlin NicGabhann is a qualified secondary school teacher, but she never wanted to teach in the traditional classroom sense; her passion for music is one of the reasons she works so hard teaching music through her own website IrishConcertinaLessons.com. Even the parts of the job that are not wholly creative, such as paperwork, administration and making applications are all necessary elements of the business: “You don’t love every part of it” Caitlin says, “but I would sit and do that for hours and days because I know I am doing it for myself.”
Caitlin has big plans for the business: “People want to be able to play in a session, so I see huge potential for the business to get even stronger. I would love to be able to continue doing what I am doing because it doesn’t feel like work when you are working on your passion – it’s kind of mad to think there are people sitting in their homes in South Korea with their concertina looking at a computer screen and learning from me in Donegal.”
