TradMentor – A New Mentoring Programme for Traditional Musicians in Scotland

Applications are now open for TradMentor, a programme offering traditional musicians the opportunity to receive mentoring from established practitioners. Supported by Creative Scotland and the Youth Music Initiative, the programme is part of the Traditional Music Forum’s ongoing support for artists working in participatory settings.

A mentoring partnership provides one-to-one time with a trained mentor to discuss your work in confidence. You will decide what to focus on and how to use the time.

Twelve mentee places are available for the programme, which will run from January to October 2020. Applicants should be:

  • based in Scotland
  • not in full-time education
  • a member of the TMF, or associated with a TMF member organisation
  • over 18

Applicants should also have a strong track record of active involvement in teaching traditional music in various settings, and a commitment to professional development.

If you are interested, request an application form by emailing Jo Miller at by 4 October, 2019.
