Welcome to the SCT Exam Registration System
The SCT (Scrúdu Ceol Tíre) programme is a graded series of exams designed to take you as a musician from basic proficiency in tune-playing through to a mastery of the tradition. Along the way you'll learn about music theory, improve your ear and research the history of musical pieces, styles and players. Oh, and play tunes, of course!
The exam is offered annually in locations around Ireland. Applicants are assigned a time slot with an experienced examiner who listens to performances and also speaks informally with the student about the theory and history of traditional music. Most SCT applicants are entered by their music teachers, who have the best sense of which level to enter. Passing the exam entitles the student to a certificate of proficiency and the right to progress to the next level of evaluation. More information about the SCT Exams can be found on the Comhaltas Website.
