During the pandemic we have been working with Craigroyston High School to pioneer new approaches to distanced classroom teaching via video link. We have been running courses on digital music production and songwriting. You can hear more about the projects in this blog post.

In non-pandemic times Tinderbox work with a number of Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Colleges and Universities in Edinburgh, delivering music workshops and longer-term projects with students and teachers.  

We have developed some courses in Digital Music Making, Composition and Improvisation, and Alternative Orchestras, that schools have found fun and effective, and we are particularly interested in collaborating on creative projects and cross-curricular ideas.

Please get in touch at if you are interested in working with us.

Schools that we work regularly with include:
Craigroyston Community High School, Ferryhill Primary School, Granton Primary School, Howden Hall School, Kaimes School, Seamab School.

Colleges and Universities that we work regularly with include:
