The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and Music Education Partnership Group (MEPG) have announced a three-year partnership to expand opportunities for more people to access music making in Scotland.
Through its flagship We Make Music Scotland initiative and with support from ABRSM, MEPG will lead on the development of an exciting new programme to make musical instruments available in public libraries across Scotland. The first Instrument Libraries will be in Fife, North Ayrshire and Edinburgh, with more to follow as the programme develops.
Reflecting on this partnership and ABRSM’s commitment to supporting music education in Scotland, ABRSM’s Chief Executive, Chris Cobb, said:
“We are delighted to be collaborating with MEPG and its partners to support the Instrument Libraries initiative. Music has the power to enrich lives and to bring people together, and this programme will provide more opportunities for more people to experience and celebrate the joy of music in Scotland.”
