Welcome to Aberdeen City Music School

Welcome to Aberdeen City Music School

I am delighted to welcome you to Aberdeen City Music School (ACMS), one of four Scottish centres of excellence for musical education. ACMS is partnered with Dyce Academy, where pupils undertake their academic studies.

We believe that music is an essential part of a well-rounded education, and we are committed to providing our pupils with the best possible opportunities to learn and grow as musicians. We offer a wide range of courses and activities, from individual instrumental tuition to ensemble playing and music theory. We also have a strong focus on performance, and our pupils regularly take part in concerts and competitions.


We are proud to have a talented and dedicated staff team, who are passionate about musical education. We are also grateful to our supportive parents and carers, who play a vital role in their child's musical journey.

If you are a passionate musician who is looking for a challenging and rewarding musical education, then ACMS is the place for you. We would be delighted to welcome you to our school.
