East Lothian Instrumental Music Service currently employs 23 highly qualified Instrumental Instructors and provides Instrumental tuition to pupils in both primary and secondary schools across the authority. Pupils are offered the opportunity to learn brass, woodwind, strings, percussion, piano, guitar and pipes with our experienced and inspiring Instructors. All our instructors are fully PVG checked and carry out regular safeguarding training. 

String tuition may start at Primary 4 and percussion at Secondary 1. All other tuition is offered from Primary 5 onwards. Please note that due to the specialisms of the Instrumental Instructors not all instruments are available in all primary schools.

The service aims to:

  • provide equal opportunities of access for all pupils to experience the expressive and creative qualities of music through learning to play an instrument
  • to help as many pupils as possible to realise their full musical potential through the playing of an instrument
