The demand for music making and the success of the instrumental programme so far has led us to look for a home which can help us grow to meet the needs of the community as well as provide facilities which offer far more opportunity for exciting music making and 21st century music education. 

We have found a great premises in a central location iin Dunbar which will allow us to offer 6 dedicated teaching rooms, a large workshop space and a recording studio, with the potential to expand further and to add rehearsal rooms for bands. 

Next steps...... we have submitted plans and soon the refurbishment of rooms will commence. We will also design the recording studio and begin the task of funding the outfitting of the building. 

What will this new venture bring to Dunbar, East Lothian , Scotland and the music world?
