This is the syllabus for the Scrúdú Ceol Tíre (SCT) Exams of traditional Irish music, a 12-level evaluation scale of proficiency not just in performance, but also in the theory, history and ornamentation of Irish traditional music. In these exams you prepare selections appropriate to your grade and an adjudicator evaluates your playing and knowledge. In the upper grades, you will also submit a written essay.

Due to limited staff, we cannot accept SCT queries via telephone, and would ask that you contact us by email at
