Martin Hayes has an online teaching platform. The options range from free downloads featuring Martin teaching tunes through his Youtube channel, to a menu of differently priced presentational master classes through his Patreon page.

His master classes demonstrate the various building blocks of his playing in a sequence of detailed steps that provide simple and effective exercises for advancing students’ playing.

Hundreds of people have signed up so far for the free videos. It’s a great tool for building repertoire and also connecting with the music while we’re all at home.

'More musicians, more dancers, more singers, more teachers, more leaders, more passionate citizens, more breakthrough creators, more caring essential workers – it doesn’t crowd out anything. It creates more opportunity for everyone. We don’t have to exclude and sort to move forward.'

Young Tradition Vermont chooses to be part of the commentary about the times we are living in. We affirm this by creating this opportunity for some friends and supporters who can help tell the truth about how they feel about racial justice. YTV can and shall do this, declaring commitment, solidarity...

Hello from your friends in Orkney. A favour to ask. Please take a couple of minutes to HELP ORKNEY MUSIC. The reel life foundation is an Orkney music charity based at The Reel in Kirkwall and their latest project is to set up an instrument bank. They have applied for a grant but need votes to get through stage 1. It would help greatly if you could go to https://www.calor.co.uk/communityfund/project/list/ or google CALOR RURAL COMMUNITY FUND register and then in the search box enter “Orkney” and use all your 10 votes for us. PLEASE SHARE AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE. You do not have to be an Orkney resident to help.
2018 Contest is available online here:
