Ritmico Music is a music school based in the Centre of Edinburgh and it was founded with the aim to provide a fresh approach to learning music through fun, innovative and interactive lessons for all schoolchildren with or without any previous music education.
We have been providing quality music education since 2011, growing and improving our teaching greatly every year. Our programmes are designed by professional music educators, using the latest music teaching techniques from around the globe in a unique combination that proves very effective in providing quality music education to kids that are motivated and enthused.
We firmly believe that the start in any child's music education is extremely important in setting a lifelong enjoyment for music and music making. That is why we carefully design all our programmes full of fun activities that are amusing for the children, but at the same time have clear targets in developing their music skills (rhythm sense, aural skills, music notation, performance skills, dexterity, etc)
Some of the main methods that our programme is based on are: Kodaly, Music Mind Games and Dalcroze Eurythmics.
All our tutors are qualified, PVG scheme members and trained by Ritmico Music in delivering quality education to the children. We all work together as a family and are very approachable and in close contact with parents discussing the best learning approach for each child.
We strive in developing our own materials including handouts, booklets, activity packs, backing tracks and more, that are reviewed and improved every year.
Music Classes for pre-school children up to 12 years old.
Group and Individual Instrumental lessons
Regular music and instrumental workshops
Regular student concerts and recitals
We firmly believe that music education is a core skill in any child’s early education.
Music provides numerous positive functions; from the enhancement of school ethos to raising confidence and social skills.
We aim to provide every child with the opportunity to learn these important skills and experience the joy of music-making so that they can make an informed decision should they wish to pursue music further.
