Learn to sing ‘Amhrán na bhFiann’ in Irish… it couldn’t be simpler
Hello and welcome…
Are you frustrated because you want to be able to sing our National Anthem in our native tongue but can’t find anyone to teach you? Well look no more. It’s not important why you don’t already know it. All that matters is that every single person who would like to be able to learn it can do it now. Please Tweet, Share and post this website’s details … and let’s get Irish people all over the world (whether Irish-born or born abroad) to sing along. C’MON YOU BOYS IN GREEN!.
You are just two steps and a few minutes away from being able to sing “Amhrán na bhFiann” as Gaelige (in Irish).
Not only that but you can do it quickly and easily. Just follow these few simple steps as Liam O’Sullivan guides you gently along… and very soon you will be singing along like a Green Army veteran. By the way, Liam teaches this with a smile on his face. We hope you will have a smile on yours too.
STEP ONE (3 minutes): Singalongaliam… Line by line…
Couldn’t be simpler. Liam sings a line… you sing it straight back. It’s not rocket science and is the simplest, most effective way to pick up the words quickly and easily. You might feel strange singing back to your computer, but at least you have someone to sing to. Liam had to sing at a camera and have you ‘answer’ in his head!
STEP TWO (4 minutes): Singalongaliam… the whole Chorus…
Singalong with Liam as he sings the whole thing together. You can practice this as often as you need to.
That’s it. Job done. If you would like to perfect your pronunciation… or indeed know more about the process… follow steps 3 & 4
STEP THREE (3 minutes): How it works…
In this video Liam explains the simple technique we will be using to make teaching yourself to sing Amrhan Na BhFiann easy and fun to do. In fact, it’s child’s play. You only need to watch this one once.
STEP FOUR (4 minutes): : Phonetics, Spoken, line by line…
First you have to get your phonetics (your sounds) right. These will be unique to you.
There are two ways to do this
The easy way… listen carefully to the next video and write down whatever you need, for you to be able to read your words back and make the right sound. Just forget about normal spelling and go with the flow.
The even easier way… just select the accent/dialect nearest your own on the PHONETICS page, print it out and read/sing along. (feel free to tweak the words to suit).
