National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music

The National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music is an exciting opportunity for young Scottish traditional musicians to develop their talent to its full potential. We offer top class tuition and an all-round, in-depth experience in traditional music, which includes individual tuition, groupwork, workshops and masterclasses, performing, recording, and the history and background of the music.

Since its inception, the Centre has become nationally and internationally acclaimed. Students of the centre have performed at such major festivals as Celtic Connections, Scots Fiddle Festival, Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton, Tartan Week in New York City, TMSA festivals, and many other concert venues both locally and nationally. They have also performed at prestigious events in the presence of royalty, and senior politicians such as the First Minister and Minister for Education, in such places as the Scotland Office, the European Parliament, and the Palace of Holyrood House.
