How to make an Instrumental Instruction application.



Q. Are there any additional fees?

Yes. East Dunbartonshire Council has a very limited supply of instruments therefore pupils may be required to purchase the instrument being taught and any relevant materials. This can be arranged through your child’s instrumental music instructor – details will be given to each child receiving tuition.

Q. What happens if lessons are scheduled for public holidays or in - service days?

Arrangements will be made for a slight adjustment in the timetable.

Q. What is the minimum level of instrumental instruction that a pupil will receive?

From August 2022 till June 2023, pupils will receive a minimum of 28 lessons unless they are absent or attend a residential music course.

Q. What happens if the instructor is absent?

If it is a one – off absence no action will be taken. If it is a long term absence, cover will be provided by the authority.
