What Instruments can I choose from? 

You will choose a 1st Choice Instrument and a 2nd choice instrument. 

1st choice - your main instrument that you have experience of playing already. (Experience not necessary if it is a beginner class!*)

2nd choice - your 'Try Something New' instrument - all 2nd choice classes will be at a beginner level so choose something you've always wanted to learn!  If you don't have any other instruments hiding in a cupboard or under the bed, voice or percussion is a great option for 2nd choice!

* Gaelic Song 1st choice will be taught primarily in Gaelic so requires you to be able to understand the Gaelic language.

Groupwork - During the week, we will have a Groupwork session in the afternoon. This is where you’ll go back to your first choice class and work on a Collaborative Set with your tutor. You’ll then video yourself playing, send it in to us by July 30th, and we’ll put it all together into a massive music video!

SC&T Youth Spotlight Sessions -

We are really excited to be launching our Spotlight Sessions.  Running on the 3rd Saturday of every month on Facebook Live and YouTube, these live Spotlight Sessions, sponsored by Stonehaven Folk Festival and Stonehaven Folk Club, are open to everyone but will really benefit the more advanced players looking to pursue a career in music or develop their knowledge further. High profile artists locally and from further afield will present on their chosen specialist topic, do a short performance and then participate in a question and answer session.

Weekly Classes Poster 

Last term, we ran fantastic online weekly classes!  With tuition in Melody Beginner/Int and Melody Advanced (any Scottish Traditional melody instrument welcome), guitar, voice, pipes and percussion, we have it all covered for you!  With a very talented line up of tutors including Patsy Reid (melody), Claire Hastings (voice), Grant Cassidy (percussion) Andrew Buchan (pipes/chanter) and Kaitlin Ross (guitar) the weekly classes are an opportunity not to be missed.
As well as learning great music from each tutor, all of the classes will also be working on a common tune to collaborate together for the end of term concert which shall be broadcasted from Music From Scotland.
The 10 week term is open to ALL abilities and instruments if you are aged between 6 and 26.  The entire cost for all 10 lessons is £10.  If you are unable to pay this but would love to be involved, please get in touch at youth@scottishculture.org.
