Instrumental Music Tuition Information 19/20
Instrumental Music Tuition is delivered by a professional team of music instructors
who work closely with schools to deliver a varied and challenging curriculum.
Pupils normally start in P6 or S1, lessons maybe available to younger or older pupils
or those wishing to start a second instrument where spaces allow.
Lessons take place normally during the school day. Secondary pupils are taken out
of classes on a rotational basis. There are opportunities to sit grade exams from one
of the major bodies, like the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. These
exams attract valuable points which can be recorded on University (UCAS)
application forms however there is an additional charge for undertaking these and
varies depending on the grade.
We offer tuition in the following areas:
Alto Sax, Baritone Horn, Clarinet, Clarsach, Cornet, Double Bass, Euphonium,
Flugel Horn, Flute, French Horn, Guitar (incudes classical, bass and electric),
Keyboard, Percussion, Piano, Tenor Horn, Tenor Sax, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba,
Viola, Violin, Violoncello and Voice.
The following instruments are sometimes available for advanced players: Baritone
Sax, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Oboe and Piccolo.
Note: Currently we do not have access to instruments such as Cor Anglais or
Soprano Saxophone and very limited access to Bassoon, Oboe, Bass Clarinet and
Baritone Saxophone but we can tutor these.
Please note it is not possible to offer the full range in all schools due to staff capacity
and availability of instruments. To discuss if the instrument is available in your child’s
school please contact Jake Herriot or check availability by school.
Parents may be asked to provide music and some equipment like, strings, reeds or
valve oil. Parents may also be asked to pay for fees for non SQA exams.
Where possible we try to support your child with the loan of an instrument, however,
in some cases this is not always possible. If parents wish to buy an instrument, the
child’s music instructor can advise on the Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme.
This offers large savings and no VAT.
You can find out more by visiting our website at www.midlothian.gov.uk and
searching on “Music Tuition”.
The form can be completed online and emailed to musictuition@midlothian.gov.uk
