Scotland is famous for its irresistible, toe-tapping traditional music.  Benbecula has developed an international reputation for the teaching of traditional music and for providing many opportunities for performance and skills development related to the music professions.

Our focus is on performance and arranging, with several performance opportunities locally and on the surrounding islands and further afield.  Classes and workshops are delivered by outstanding teaching staff.
