Based in North Edinburgh Arts, we run a weekly music hub for children & young people aged 8-21 and of all levels of experience, from those who have never played before to experienced young musicians. There is a live band, a studio & production group, songwriting, samba drumming and instrumental tuition – it is completely open access and runs termly blocks on Tuesdays free of charge.
