In 2014 Coláiste Phobal Chléire on Cape Clear Island is offering a week-long traditional music course for young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18 who have already developed an interest and ability in traditional music and would both enjoy and benefit from an intensive week of formal tuition, informal practise and group sessions. The course will focus on the student’s main instrument and will encourage all students to diversify their interests by providing workshops in traditional song and Sean Nós dancing, and if they wish, a second instrument of choice.

Guitar tuition will also be available, which includes both the use of the guitar to accompany traditional music and other styles playing. The main areas of tuition will focus on Irish Traditional instruments (fiddle, traditional flute/tin whistle, accordion, guitar, mandolin etc) as well as amhránaíocht ar an sean nós and rince ar an sean nós (traditional song and dance). Alternative evening/recreational activities will include céilís, guided walks, boat trips, swimming, kayaking and treasure hunts.  Students may attend either as day student or avail of full board in accommodation similar to that of Irish College students.
