Inverclyde Music Service

Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music... I get most joy in life out of music.

Inverclyde Music Service works across the authority to provide high quality musical opportunities for all children and young people.

There are many benefits to learning music:-

  • It may improve your child’s educational attainment
  • It can help your child achieve through exams, gradings and competitions
  • It offers the opportunity to learn a skill for life
  • It builds confidence through performance
  • It provides great opportunities for teamwork and socialising

Instrumental tuition is the core of the work of the Music Service This is delivered by more than twenty music instructors who have individual specialisms enabling us to offer tuition on the full range of orchestral instruments, voice, guitar and bagpipes.

The Music Service does charge secondary age young people fees for instrumental lessons. However free lessons are offered to children whose families receive certain benefits and there are also sibling discounts available.

Alongside offering instrumental tuition, instructors also run many school orchestras and ensembles in both primary and secondary schools. These ensembles are renowned for their high standard of performance and are particularly successful in national competitions. Pupils are also invited to attend our Music Centre which runs on a Saturday morning offering specialist tuition on a variety of instruments.
