Instrumental Music Service

West Lothian Council's Instrumental Music Service provides instrumental music lessons to primary and secondary school pupils and opportunities for these pupils to play in one of the many bands and ensembles that perform regularly at a range of venues and events locally, nationally and internationally.

The Service is delivered in schools by professional instrumental music instructors who provide a structured and progressive music curriculum which is encapsulated in the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence - to enable each child or young person to be a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor. The Instrumental Music Service is managed by the Coordinator of Instrumental Music who is based within Education Services.
