Summer Sessions – June 2021

During the challenges of the 2020/21 school session, South Ayrshire Instrumental Music Service adapted delivery of instrumental lessons to ensure we reached young people in schools and at home delivering over 14,000 live lessons across the session. Our young musicians amazed us with their resilience, positive attitude and ability to continue to learn. We were unable to hold our normal ensemble and group activities, but pupils took part in a 6-week virtual rehearsal programme across different authority ensembles. Please enjoy these performances:

Junior Strings – Cancion del Amor
Senior Strings – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Junior Concert Band – Happy
Senior Concert Band – Cake by the Ocean
Percussion Ensemble – Thunderstruck
Chamber Choir – Seasons of Love
Pipe Band – Mairi’s Wedding
New Music Collective – Schools’ Out

In the Spring of 2020 during lockdown,  our learners along with current and past team members and friends came together to say thank you to our wonderful NHS for their unstinting work.  Thank you to the Music Education Partnership Group who made parts available as part of  their We Make Music for the NHS initiative.

We were inundated with videos of performances which we have collated here. We hope you enjoy our tribute! Over the Rainbow – South Ayrshire Instrumental Music Service Video
