Classes & Workshops 2023/24
Our Autumn Term in 2023 will begin in week commencing 18th September 2023.
This year we are returning to 3 night running but with a difference. On Monday nights we will run a Mixed Instruments class with Sharon Hassan. Mixed Instruments will be the only class running on Mondays. All other classes will run on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. This will accommodate anyone who would like to attend both a Mixed Instruments class and an individual instrument class.
Classes will run for up to 10 weeks starting at 7pm each night, face to face, in the MacRobert Building on the Aberdeen University campus. In support of the live, face to face tuition, we will continue to use the fantastic Thinkific platform where you can access all the lesson material (music/ recordings/ videos etc.). Some classes may be offered as both face to face AND live broadcast online.
Our proposed classes are listed below. While we will do our best to run all of these classes we can not guarantee to run classes that do not have sufficient numbers to be viable.
Signup, payment and class materials will be handled by our Thinkific eLearning Platform
- Fiddle 0 – Joe Hibbs
- Whistle 0 – Sal Buckler
- Clarsach 0/1 – Irene Watt
- Fiddle 1/2 – Sandy Tweddle
- Flute 2/3 – Malcolm Reavell
- Whistle 2/3 – Helen Lynch
how much will it cost?
Our 23/24 class fees will be announced soon.
Over the last few years, SC&T has actively taken steps to ensure that classes are accessible to as many people as possible. In the past we have offered concessions to specific groups such as those in receipt of a pension or other benefits, as well as sourcing funding for a limited number of free places. In light of the impact of Covid over the last year we decided to review our approach to ensure that our support is more targeted to include individuals who would be unable to access classes at the full fee. As a result, we have decided to move away from a standard concession rate for specific groups and instead, try to provide support to those who need this most and who would otherwise be unable to join our classes.
If you feel that your financial circumstances make it difficult for to pay the full fee we would encourage you to contact the firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider a reduction. We will not require detailed financial information. We also have a limited number of free places which you may be considered for.
On the other hand, if you would like to give a little bit more, you can also Donate to SC&T.
What if I can’t manage all 10 weeks?
In those classes where the lessons are being recorded the video and course materials will be available for you to use through the Thinkific platform if you miss a class.
