I'd like to find out more about what is involved in the weekly performance group?
There are 3 different groups that can be signed up to - Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, though all 3 groups work together for collaborative sets also. Beginner: This class is ideal for young people that want to start learning some Scottish Traditional music. If they do not already play an instrument but are keen to be involved, SC&T Youth will provide them with a free penny whistle and give basic tuition on this. Scots Song is taught and participants are encouraged to help arrange sets with the whole group. Intermediate - Participants should be able to play a few tunes on their instrument to join this class. Advanced - Participants should be able to play fluently and competently. There will be a variety of tunes and tune types taught and the young folk will take the lead on the arrangements for their class. For all classes, playing by ear shall be encouraged though music shall be put on Thinkific and will be available. If you have any further questions at all, please don't hesitate to give us an email at email@example.com.
How much do the SC&T Youth Weekly Classes cost?
The SC&T Youth weekly classes cost £2 per class which total £20 for the term from January to April. The online option, where you don't come to the classes in person but learn the content online independently, is £1 per class so £10 for the term. There is an option to pay a little more (£30) if you feel you would like to and you can do this by clicking the arrow on the pricing option to view all options. We also have bursary spaces available for the SC&T Youth weekly group so if you would like to have a bursary space, all you have to do it email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Why does my course have lots of lessons when I look at it?
There are currently 3 Welcome and Registration lessons to complete before the start of the workshop. And more lessons for each week of term. More will be added as the term goes on by your tutor. Don't worry, there are still only 10 weeks in the term!
I've already taken part in the SC&T Youth workshops before, can I take part again?
Yes, absolutely! Our tutors will be teaching new material each workshop.
