'Music is about communication... it isn't just something that maybe physically sounds good or orally sounds interesting; it's something far, far deeper than that' - Dame Evelyn Glennie

At Braidwood School, we have weekly whole class music lessons, individual instrumental (brass/keyboard) tuition and Braidwood Band rehearsals provided by Amy Swallow from Services for Education (SFE) - Music Service. 

In our class music sessions, students:

  • Have access to and learn the appropriate technical skills for a range of instruments including keyboards, ukuleles and djembe drums.
  • Learn how to play pieces on a variety of instruments.
  • Have the opportunity to create their own music.
  • Develop the skills to make music together and to lead and follow.
  • Learn about music from different cultures and inspiring musicians.  

Our students have taken part in the following music events:

  • 'Summer Sounds' music showcase - Mac Arts Centre
  • The SFE Virtual Spring Schools' Proms
  • Regular school assemblies
