SC&T Classes 2022

Autumn Term 2022 coming soon...


 

SC&T'S Winter online term starts 17th January 2022

We're really excited to let you know SC&T are running a 10 week online term starting the week beginning January 2022

What's happening?

Classes will run for 10 weeks on either a Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday evening starting at 7pm on Zoom. We will also be using the fantastic Thinkific platform where you can access all the lesson material (music/ recordings/ videos etc.) as well as the recorded Zoom lesson.

Class times?

Classes will run from 7pm - 9pm. 

How will it work?

Everyone will join the same Zoom call at 7pm. (You can find the Zoom link once you sign up and start your Thinkific course) You will then be sent into your instrument breakout room for one hour. We will then come back into the main Zoom session for 20mins of social time/ tea break! (Don't worry if you don't want to join in, you can just turn your camera off).  We'll then go back into class breakout rooms until 9pm.

How much will it cost?

2hr class is £10 per class. This can be paid in one lump sum of £100 for the term or 3 x monthly payments of £33.33

You can choose what payment option you prefer when you sign up on Thinkific. 

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 chairman@scottishculture.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?

Don't worry!! Tutors will record their Zoom lessons and upload to thinkific where you'll be able to watch in your own time! Tutors will also be uploading sheet music and recordings to make catching up even easier!
