Parents are invited to apply for instrumental music tuition for their child at the school. Auditions normally take place at the beginning of a session and places offered accordingly.
Currently the school offers tuition in violin and chanter. The school has links with a local church recorder group at which children can attend.
All children receive regular class music lessons.
Youth Music Initiative
This year we are getting involved with the Youth Music Initiative project (funded by Creative Scotland) to ensure Primary 5 pupils take part in whole class music sessions, led by instrumental music instructors. This is due to take place in the final term of session 2020-21.
The sessions, which will be led by the music instructor and supported by the class teacher, will provide an active, participatory, creative and enjoyable introduction to music in order to develop musicianship skills. The sessions are based on the Get Creative Resource, BBC Ten Pieces and the instructor’s own individual expertise and will involve rhythm games, active listening and improvisation and composition.
Martin Douglas, brass instructor, will be delivering these lessons.
