Youth Weekly Group

sc&t youth weekly groupSC&T Youth Weekly Group

Are you are aged between 6-26, enjoy Scottish Traditional music and want to be part of a fantastic youth music group with other like minded young folk, come join us!

We meet on Tuesday evenings (term time only) from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at the MacRobert Building, Aberdeen University. There are 3 separate classes with a choice of Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

The Weekly Group participants and tutors work together to arrange performance sets which we showcase at various fantastic performance opportunities throughout the year. Some of these include Stonehaven Folk Festival, Portsoy Scottish Traditional Boat Festival, Light the Blue Festival and many many more!

We work very, very hard to secure funding to ensure there are as little barriers as possible to young people participating in our activities. This term, we are giving options of prices you can contribute to the weekly classes.  These include a Free option, a £20 option (equivalent to £2 per class) or a £40 option (equivalent to £4 per class).  All funds we raise from classes go right back into providing high quality
opportunities for the young people.

To sign up, please head along to are also introducing a SC&T Youth Voice for our participants and a SC&T Youth Steering Group for parents/carers and volunteers to have a say on the programme and discuss ways you can possibly help with SC&T Youth.  To find out more please email
