Aur Training Courses

trac has run a series of one-day workshops aimed at part-time and full-time professional musicians, particularly those in the folk/traditional sector. The workshops were designed to help musicians become better communicators and be more professional in the “business” side of a musical career.

Excellent day. Very personable and knowledgeable tutor with ability to engage on a basic level. Very useful info. All sections of day were relevant to me.

Fantastic day, thank you very much. Found it very useful and great value for money!

The opportunity to meet and learn directly from Brian McNeill was a true privilege. I will be actively looking out for other events trac offers. This was excellent. Thank you
