Instrumental Music Service

Instrumental Music Service.

The Instrumental Music Service provides excellent music provision in all Primary and Secondary schools within the authority. Lessons are free of charge for all pupils and out of the 32 local authorities within Scotland; West Dunbartonshire Council is 1 of the 8 councils that remains free of charge for its service. Provision is provided for strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, drums and percussion and we aim to make instrumental learning accessible to pupils from Primary 4 (depending on instrument) through to the end of the school. In addition to our team of instructors, the authority has an instrumental repairer.

The team of specialist instructors provide individual and group lessons and run a variety of ensembles, bands and orchestras within the schools and the authority. We have a wide range of authority groups such as:

  • Primary String Ensemble
  • Senior String Ensemble
  • Training Wind Band
  • Senior Wind Band
  • Funk sKool
  • Ukulele Orchestra
  • WDC Youth Orchestra
