Classes & Instrument Hire
BelfastTrad runs three terms of classes each year starting in September, January, and after Easter. Beginners are welcome at the start of each term. We offer a variety of levels on each of the following instruments: Button Accordion, Bodhrán, Concertina, Flute, Fiddle, Banjo, Mandolin, Tin Whistle, Uilleann Pipes, Guitar, harp, and traditional singing
Instrument Hire Scheme
Want to try an instrument before you buy? We operate an instrument hire scheme to get you started. We offer harps, button accordions, concertinas, bodhráns, flutes, banjos, mandolins and uilleann pipes for hire to our enrolled students. (Sorry, no fiddles, guitars or whistles) These are available on a first-come, first-served basis at our instrument hire nights before the start of each term. Harps cost £45 per term, all other instruments are £25. Numbers are limited.
Monday nights are for dancing at BelfastTrad. Our classes at Rosemary Hall are friendly, welcoming, and open to anyone who wants to learn. We offer three levels of sean nós (old style solo step dancing) and sets classes. New to set dancing? Come at 8:00pm for a free beginner's tutorial. Book online for sean nós (solo step) classes. For sets, just pay at the door on the night.
