The Scottish Music Centre is a one-stop shop for information for anyone interested in music. Visitors to the Centre can use computers with a range of the latest music software, including Sibelius 4 and Garageband, and read a variety of specialist music publications, directories and magazines relevant to all musical styles and interests.
It is also home to an enormous archive of nearly 30,000 items, ranging from copies of 18th Century song-sheets and Scottish contemporary classical scores to the latest CD releases from traditional, rock, jazz and indie bands.
Add to this a seemingly endless electronic database resource and a team of experts whose enthusiasm and personal knowledge is second to none, and the result is a hub of information, offering unparalleled access to knowledge and advice about music created, performed or recorded in Scotland.
Creative Scotland administers the Scottish Government’s Youth Music Initiative (YMI) programme which creates access to high quality music making opportunities for young people, particularly for those that would not normally have the chance to participate.
