Our teachers are all fabulous musicians and performers, who are specialists in their subjects and so we also provide public performances for concerts and events including weddings, funerals and corporate functions. This can range from a Classical concert pianist, or a flute and harp ensemble to a jazz sax trio and a full Ceilidh band with caller!!
We have regular workshop sessions at our Bromborough and Bebington venues where we provide tuition on a numerous celtic instruments in an informal and friendsly Ceilidh setting.
Our programme also includes workshops for children in schools, and performances at a range of events.
Education and Learning
For schools, Celtic Roots provides specialist music and arts programmes supporting music and cultural education across the National Curriculum. We run socially-inclusive programmes to all communities through music, dance, art and drama.
Community Health and Wellbeing
Our aim is to bring the community together to experience, explore and share the possibilities of learning to play a musical instrument. We learn in a Ceilidh setting and we use the word Ceilidh in the truest meaning of the word which is "gathering of friends". We learn about our cultural heritage and the importance of folk music of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Our combination of relaxed learning with artistic excellence means that students make good progress whilst forming associations and lasting friendships.
Concerts and Ceilidhs are organised for pupils to display their new or rekindled talents. These events provide pupils with goals and manageable achievements. Members of the public are invited to spectate and participate. We also run children's Ceilidh music workshops, family workshops and miniature flute-making projects, which cater from ages four and up.
