What Students Say
Such a great place - I always knew I wanted to study Traditional Music and Song and NESMS equipped me with great tuition which also introduced me to new great classical repertoire.
The staff were absolutely lovely and very welcoming, and the violin teacher - Gillian Findlay - was amazing! She could see I was nervous and put me right at ease. Everything she told me was extremely beneficial and she took me through my final two grades.
The opportunity that it has provided to me, a mature player, to have access to such a great, knowledgable, inspiring, and encouraging teacher - Ian Wilson - has contributed immensely to developing me into the musician I am today.
Fully supportive of any singing genre! All inclusive and for everyone. Jean Webster was absolutely brilliant and I really came on with her guidance and expertise.
I would not have dreamed of doing the things I have done over the past 10 years, if it had not been for the help and encouragement of Ian Wilson, and I would not have been having lessons with him if it weren't for NESMS. Thank you so much!
I am now a classroom teacher and have definitely been inspired by the wonderful teaching I received from Michael Beeston. I have very happy memories and am very aware of the skills viola playing has taught me.
NESMS was an absolute life line for me and I'm so grateful for the opportunity it gave me to pursue music as a career.

What Others Say
The Aim of NESMS is to provide young people of outstanding musical promise with the opportunity to experience tuition not available within their existing framework of study
I know from my own experience that NESMS occupies a very special place in the musical life of the North East of Scotland.
It is so important that people feel they can engage at any stage of their lives in the world of music.
