Music For ALL

Music for ALL is especially focused to welcome and be accessible to people with learning disabilities. The courses are designed to encourage participation and enjoyment and include a range of music plus developmental activities such as turn taking, literacy (recognising words of songs) and numeracy (beat counting, clapping etc).  Musical instruments are supplied and there is no requirements about experience – just a wish to be there and participate in the ways that suit each person.

The input of support staff is essential in assisting students to participate in their individual ways and to enjoy being part of making music. Music for ALL aims to be a “screen free” environment!  We request use of mobiles and chatting is only during tea break.

We run six courses per term (3 terms/year) in the following locations:


  • The Nelson Hall Community Centre on Monday and Wednesday,
  • Richmond Craigmiller Church Hall on Tuesday and Friday,
  • Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre on Thursdays

Midlothian: The Pitcairn Centre, Bonnyrigg on Mondays

Dates and info:


Easter break starts during the week 27th-31st March except the Bonnyrigg course which finishes on 3rd April. Music recommences the week of 18th April apart from the Edinburgh Monday group which starts on the 24th April
