Instruments

Our Instrumental Music Service (IMS) provides tuition in the following disciplines:

  • Strings
  • Brass
  • Woodwind
  • Guitar
  • Percussion

Lessons

All lessons are delivered on a group basis online through Microsoft Teams or in person, dependant on timetabling, as we try to offer as many pupils a lesson as possible. Secondary school pupils will have their lessons delivered on a rota basis during the school day to ensure they don't regularly miss any one subject. Most primary school lessons will take place at the same time each week.

Lessons will follow a structured course of study which is suited to the pupil's abilities as well as SQA, local authority and school requirements. They support learning through to Advanced Higher level and external music examinations where required.

Charges

Lessons for the 21/22 academic year are funded by the Scottish Government. The IMS is able to loan orchestral instruments to pupils free of charge. Guitars and percussion instruments are not available for loan, however, they are normally available to use in school.
