The first edition of the Charter for Instrumental Music, launched in 2011, was a landmark publication for the EIS asserting, as it did, the right of every child to learn to play a musical instrument and/or to develop their ability to sing.

This updated publication sets out our vision for the future of instrumental music in Scottish education, at a time when those who care about music education are deeply concerned about what may lie ahead unless concerted efforts are made to defend instrumental music provision in schools.
