At the Acadia Trad School, we believe that sessions are one of the best ways to build community and share in the joy of traditional music. Sessions are offered year-round at a variety of levels. Slow sessions are focused on learning tunes, and all levels are welcome. Other sessions are faster (often MUCH faster!) and geared to advanced students, but beginning and intermediate students gain much from listening and following along. Check the Events Calendar for upcoming events. There is one at least every other week!



Here are some tunes commonly played at local sessions, with links to sheet music and MIDI files on The Session. Want more? Work your way down their list of Popular Tunes and you can’t go wrong!
