Our Advanced Fèis Week gives intermediate/advanced players in S1-S6 the opportunity to develop their existing skills with two of Scotland’s top traditional musicians.

Participants will take part in a series of workshops in subjects like accompaniment and melody, groupwork, playing for dancing and more. Take a look at what your week may include here: Advanced Fèis Timetable. Across the week, participants work with their tutors and others in their class to prepare a piece for our finale concert. They will also take part in Gaelic language activities each morning, including our annual Fèis song – a song for everyone to learn together which is the finale of the participants’ concert. 

All of our tutors are experienced, professional musicians, skilled in working with young people. We also have a pool of supervisors and volunteers who help our events run smoothly. Young people are supervised at all times and we work in accordance with Child Protection and Health & Safety Guidelines. Our staff are all members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme administered by Disclosure Scotland.
 

Please note: Participants of our Advanced Fèis Week must already have been studying in high school for at least 1 year. Pupils transitioning to high school from primary 7 are not eligible for these workshops.

We work hard to keep access open to all young people and are fortunate to secure public funding to support our events. Places at our events are subsidised wherever possible with the true cost of each place being much higher.

Payment can be made in full or using our deposit scheme. If you choose to pay with our deposit scheme, 25% will be taken at the time of booking with the remaining balance due 1 month before the event.

We have a limited number of fully funded places at our events for pupils entitled to free school meals or for families on low incomes (proof of confirmation required). Tick the relevant box on our application form to make an application to this scheme.
