Welcome to The City of Edinburgh Music School

Tudor MorrisAs Director of The Music School, along with my Assistant Director Susan Emslie it gives me great pleasure to introduce this website about our unique institution.

Nowhere else in Europe is there a school in the maintained sector which offers a complete full-time specialist music programme from primary to secondary level in two neighbouring centres. The happy association with Flora Stevenson Primary School ensures the musical development of our students from an early age within a caring and sensitive framework. The intensive training - involving regular practice, various ensembles and individual expert tuition from the most talented and dedicated teachers in the land, paves the way for our students to secure positions in some of the most prestigious colleges, universities, ensembles, orchestras and media organisations in the world.

Also unique is the commitment to all styles of music. Building on our exceptional reputation for classical teaching we also offer expertise in the fields of rock, jazz and traditional Scottish music. New exciting ventures have included workshops with internationally renowned practitioners from the world of arts and music. The City of Edinburgh Music School keeps abreast of all that is new on the music scene while ensuring the highest standards and finest traditions of teaching, performing and academic study.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about The Music School personally.
