Want to take up an instrument?

Making Music, in partnership with the BBC’s Get Creative initiative, are encouraging people to learn an instrument or take up singing with the Grade 1 Challenge.

The aim is to help as many people as possible to take a Grade 1 exam by the end of 2015.

Interested? Well you’ll need four things:

  1. an instrument
  2. a teacher (many of whom are listed on Your Edinburgh)
  3. motivation
  4. something to play

And fifth – a visit to the Central Music Library!

As well as helping you find a music teacher, we’ve got loads of Grade 1 music you can borrow as well as additional information on Making Music and The Challenge.

We also have “Grade-1-a-thon” Challenge packs to give away, generously donated by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
