In these Scottish traditional music classes for adults, you can build your confidence to play your instrument, and join with others to explore the fun of music. We’ll mainly be learning Scottish folk tunes. All classes are taught by ear.

Getting involved in learning folk music is a great way to join an informal community of musicians across the country. Many musicians play in regular pub sessions, where they relax with friends for the evening, sharing tunes together. We’ll be supporting players to build their confidence to join their local session.

These fiddle classes are based at St Bride’s Community Centre, which is close to Haymarket station in Edinburgh. You can generally enrol in classes from a week before the start of each term.

String Circle fiddle class

Ros Gasson will be teaching fiddle playing technique in this class helping you to improve your tone, rhythm and tuning, and find your fiddle ‘voice’. Join us to find out how to shift from playing the notes to playing music! Learn to play the fiddle in the String Circle fiddle class.

Session Tunes workshop

In 2013-2014, Corinne Clarke taught common Scottish session tunes to players who wanted to build their confidence and join their local session. The class isn’t running this term.
