Music is a core component of life in our Edinburgh Junior School, and
we take pride in making it inclusive and practical for everyone,
regardless of experience. We have our own music facilities and access to
our renowned Robertson Music Centre. With two weekly music lessons
taught by dedicated Junior School music teachers, each class enjoys a
comprehensive music education.
The Junior School Music

challenges of the subject, providing students with the skills they need
to create and understand the language of music.
