Ritmico Music 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 in several school around Edinburgh, growing and improving our services greatly every year. We run Music classes in the Brunstfield area (Find our more here)
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).
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.
A variety of Music Clubs for Primary Schools, Music Classes open for all primary school children,
Group and Individual Instrumental lessons by qualified and trained tutors
and interactive music and instrumental workshops for the community.
We are aware of the current cuts in music education at the moment; however 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.
If your school already has an existing music service, we can work alongside this to enhance pupils’ development and provide further opportunities for playing and learning.
