Traditional Irish Music
‘Irish Music Teachers’ is a new premium resource on Tradconnect for music teachers across the globe. Within it we will profile in detail members who are involved in passing on this tradition to the next generation of young musicians. Each teacher profile will include specially written content and will be featured extensively on Tradconnect, our social media channels and within our newsletter.
Within each profile there is also the opportunity to highlight your own albums and projects as we integrate them into your profile. This profile can be shared on Facebook and Twitter and the public can search by map, instrument, country or region.
Tradconnect now receives up to 1,000 visitors each day and streams over 400 hours of music to over 140,000 people that visit our pages every year. We have also distributed over 30,000 digital tracks on behalf of artists to 100+ radio stations that we have partnered with, to aid in the promotion of traditional music.
This resource will be formally launched in January 2017.
