AIYF Traditional Music School: 31st July – 5th August

Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF)

The Traditional Music School is open to young people aged 11-18 and Grade 2+. The course aims to build on the success of both the previous Ceol Mor Big Band and Splore courses which the festival has led for the last decade.

With experienced professional tutors taking the lead, participants will have the opportunity to explore traditional music with a contemporary twist. They are encouraged to take influences from other genres and inspiration from the visiting international bands from the USA and Canada.

In a full programme of activity, young people will have the opportunity to develop their skills, learn new pieces and collaborate with others. In the evenings there will be opportunities to see other festival shows and meet the international groups. AIYF chaperones will be on hand throughout the week providing supervision for younger participants. For more information about the course, and how to apply, click here.

Day time rehearsals are typically from 10am – 4/5pm.
