The work of Feis Rois, a traditional music and arts organisation based in Dingwall, takes place year round and extends well beyond Ross Shire.
In addition to an extensive programme of music tuition in local authorities across Scotland, their local young musicians have toured Scotland, the UK and internationally.
Classes in the Community Centre are for adults and it is hoped that whether you are a beginner or a more experienced player, that there will be something to interest you.
Classes are run in other areas too, but at the Centre in Dingwall they run on Thursdays from 4 - 8.45pm.
Other instrumental and levels of class have been run in the past and consideration would be given to doing so again if there was a demand.
