Looking to gain more experience playing Scottish tunes? Come and celebrate the wealth of music Scotland has to offer and learn a selection of Scottish tunes both old and new, working first on the melody and then progressing to left hand accompaniments. We’ll look at the different types of tunes common in the Scottish repertoire: sprightly strathspeys, roaring reels and wistful waltzes, all of which help contribute to the simply spectacular Scottish sound!
