Papers from the conference held on the Magee campus of University of Ulster, Derry City, Northern Ireland over 25-27 April, 2003. These are a stimulating insight into the assessment and provision of traditional music education at all levels from the practical to the academic, throughout the island of Ireland and abroad. While the concern and focus is on Irish Traditional music, the ideas and methodologies presented in this landmark selection of papers take other European-style Folk / Traditional musics as well – those of Norway, Scotland, Isle of Man, Northern England, Newfoundland, Mid West USA, Norway and Brittany. The papers address group and one-to-one instrumental teaching of children in organised classes, summer schools and seasonal workshops, the specialised and well-established music schools, third level teaching, and also cover teaching via tutor books, CD ROMs, CD, videos and the internet.
