Below are links to many of the tunes taught by Ros over the years. Tunes are generally learnt by ear, so any version that is written down is ‘as learnt by’ the person who wrote it down. Think of this sheet music as a general guide to how each tune goes – you will hear all sorts of different ways of playing them!
