“Music is essential to the creative development of every child. Providing free access to high-quality music teaching and progression pathways is a tremendous step forward with the potential to be life-enhancing and transformative, not just for individual young people but for a nation that puts creativity, equity and well-being at the heart of both its communities and economy.

“We are delighted to see the ambitions of the Music for Scotland manifesto, which include a recognition of the professional status of school instrumental music instructors, being embraced so wholeheartedly as an election commitment.”
