Music for ALL is a social enterprise project (ESEN reg 74) and runs 6 music courses and has a great party and ceilidh band called Coracle for events related to Music for ALL.
The course programmes are linked to the foot of this page – please scroll down. The courses are focused to be welcome and accessible to people with learning disabilities and are designed to encourage participation and enjoyment. There is a wide 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 important 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 and Thursdays.
- Richmond Craigmiller Church Hall on Tuesday and Friday,
- The Pitcairn Centre, Bonnyrigg on Mondays
Dates and information: The summer term ends in the last week of June for the Edinburgh courses and we are rebooking on this week, and rebooking on 1st July for the Bonnyrigg course, which ends on 8th July.
