“He has been loving the P2 class this year & we have really enjoyed his enthusiasm”
Musical Workshop classes have similar aims and methods to musical play classes, but at a more mature level. The musical workshop classes also introduce children to the basic elements of reading music, and give them a chance to hear many different instruments played live, thereby facilitating their choice of which instrument, if any, they would like to learn themselves. There are up to twenty children in each group. Musical Workshop is a year’s course designed to prepare a child for learning an instrument or singing in a choir.
Completion of this one-year course is a pre-requisite for joining Edinburgh Young Musicians beginner classes in recorder, violin, viola, cello or choir.
Most children take the Musical Workshop classes in Primary 2, some in Primary 3. The cost is £8.20 per week during the 2023/24 session.
Classes are taught by Alex Goskirk with help from student assistants.
