We want to make sure that you have all the information you need before your child starts a class here at Fèis Rois. If you don’t find the information you are looking for below then please contact our Community Classes Co-ordinator.

A big part of the Fèis Rois weekly class programme is to help support young people to build their confidence and skills to perform in the community.

We offer a small number of one-to-one sessions for young people as part of our weekly classes. Get in touch with our Community Classes Co-ordinator to find out more.

We hold community ceilidhs locally at the end of the June term when family and friends are invited to come along to listen to the classes performing. Often there are other opportunities to perform in the community at fundraisers or family events.

How much do classes cost?

The fee for the full year in 2017-2018 is £210 and payment is made either in full online/by cheque, or by monthly standing order payments of £21 per month for 10 months – August to May.

Two classes: this might be one child attending two classes, or two children from the same family attending a class each. You receive a discount of £28 – this is £392 for the year, or standing order payments of £39.20 per month for 10 months.

Three classes: this might be one child attending three classes, or two or three children from the same family attending classes. You receive a discount of £56 – this is £574 for the year, or standing order payments of £57.40 per month for 10 months.

Fèis Rois can offer financial assistance to families on low incomes. Please contact our Community Classes Coordinator to discuss this in confidence.

Can I just turn up?

No. You must pay in advance for classes and it’s important that we have all your emergency contact details and any information regarding special circumstances and additional support needs before your child joins our classes. If we don’t have this information we can’t accept your child in the class.

I don’t have my own instrument, does that matter?

No, it doesn’t matter as you are welcome to hire one. Fèis Rois has an instrument bank of around 100 instruments.

Whether you are starting from scratch or polishing your skills, we have well respected musicians on hand to help you in a relaxed and fun environment. Everyone is welcome at our classes and if you can’t find something suitable for you, then get in touch and we’ll see if we can help.

We also have some sessions available if you’d prefer to play tunes rather than learn in a more structured class environment. In addition to the classes, there may be opportunities for you to perform through the year if you would like to and we hold a Christmas social event for all class members too.
