Online Community for Trad Teachers Goes Live

September 17, 2021


The world’s first online community for Irish traditional music teachers has gone live today. Innovative online CPD platform, I Teach Trad has opened the doors to trad teachers from all corners of the globe.

The announcement was made by leading Irish traditional music figure, Dr Liz Doherty, who developed the  initiative. “This is whereteachers of traditional music can gather, be inspired, motivated, learn from each other, share tips and ideas.”

“Often traditional music teachers feel like they are on their own. Everyone feels like they are having to make it all up as they go along. Every teacher I talk to says the same thing.”

Why a Dedicated Place for Traditional Music Teachers?

I’ve been running I Teach Trad courses and workshops for over a year now. And there’s one resounding piece of positive feedback I hear over and over again. It’s this: traditional music teachers love the opportunity to come together to learn, to share – and to talk teaching. Here’s what they have said:

“I learned so much from all the other group members.”

“I really enjoyed hearing everyone else’s story.”

Meeting other teachers and hearing what they are doing and getting new ideas and resources to look at benefits everyone. I loved the workshop.”

At I Teach Trad we listened. We heard. And we have created this online community to create that space for you.
