COST: £70

Thomas YoungTuesday evening, six weeks, starting 17/01/23 to 21/03/23, 7:30 pm to 9 pm.

These evening classes will be taught online through Zoom and are intended for both absolute beginners and those able to play a few basic tunes on the chanter. Content will be adjusted as far as practical to fit different levels of class participants, and therefore it would be helpful to let us know a little about your current ability. If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch with us on .

Thomas Young will teach different types of tunes based on level of ability and provide a background to the origins of the tunes. Although this class will be taught in English, Thomas is fluent in Gaelic, and if you are not a Gaelic speaker already, you will be able to pick up some helpful phrases along the way.
