Behind this project and driving its success is a number of dedicated individuals, organisations and institutions. Achieving our ambition would not be possible without a shared philosophy and collaborative ethos.

National Centre for Music

The National Centre for Music will be a world leading cultural venue for young musicians no matter their background, for their teachers, for community music organisations and professional performers to inspire the joy of music, nurture skills and foster innovation. Working with a number of other key partners, its aspiration is to be the catalyst for Scotland to fulfil its potential as a world leader in music inspiration, education and performance.
