Applications for SCT Exams 2015 have opened. Scrúdú Ceol Tíre (SCT) are exams set by Comhaltas in an effort to set standards in Irish music. Exams include a performance section, aural awareness, an informal musical discussion and a literacy section. The exams offer students the opportunity to learn about the history of our tradition as well as improving their technical knowledge about their respective instruments. These exams are not at all obligatory, but anyone who may be interested in sitting an exam should consult Sheila. The exams usually take place any time between February and May with results available in July.
Please download form here and return to Sheila before 6th December. Any student who misses this date must apply online at www.comhaltas.ie/education/sct_exam/.
For more information consult Sheila or read the SCT syllabus.
