Edinburgh's Most Successful Music School Since 1999.
Professional Tuition for Children and Adults.


Edinburgh Piano Lessons

Chopin or Elton John, Chick Corea or The Carpenters, Haydn or The Beatles? We can teach you the specific style that you want to learn, while our professional, qualified piano teachers guide you on the path to becoming a successful musician.


Edinburgh Saxophone Lessons

An instrument that holds a special place in both jazz and classical music, the saxophone is a very popular choice at Morningside School of Music. We teach both tenor and alto, and cover many different approaches to learning this fantastic instrument, including ABRSM grades.


Edinburgh Drum Lessons

Our professional percussion teachers have played with some of the leading names in the music industry, and our clients enjoy benefiting from their extensive experience. Technical aspects such as rudiments, timing, co-ordination and syncopation are taught, as well as many other elements originating from the world of rhythm.


Edinburgh Violin Lessons

The violin is an exquisite instrument for any person to learn; our teachers can guide you to make the most of its remarkable resonance.


Edinburgh Singing Lessons

From musicals to Oasis, we can help you with whatever style you want to learn. Our teachers are fantastic and fun, and the lessons are always exciting.


Edinburgh Bass Lessons

Our proficient teachers aim to equip first time students with basic knowledge of technical and theoretical components of becoming a master bass player. Students are encouraged to examine various methods of playing the bass guitar, as well as learn to express themselves musically.


Edinburgh Popular Music Choir

We are currently recruiting new members for the Edinburgh Popular Music Choir. No singing experience required as there is no sheet music at our choir, so it is accessible to all. We are all about singing and having fun!


Ukulele, Accordion and More...

Most our teachers are multi-instrumentalists who enjoy playing less popular but equally attractive instruments, so if you have something special in mind don't be afraid to ask. You may be surprised at the wide range of instruments we can teach you something about...


Morningside School of Music has been the busiest music school in Edinburgh since we were established in 1999. Our music teachers are professional, fully-qualified experts, with extensive backgrounds working within the music industry as performers as well as teachers.

We are proud to offer a range of music lessons at our Edinburgh location including Guitar (electric and acoustic), Bass, Piano, Singing, Drums, Violin, Saxophone, Music Production, Music Theory and much more. Our Edinburgh Singing Lessons and Edinburgh Guitar Lessons are a firm favourite with our clients, however our Edinburgh Piano Lessons are also very busy choice.

All of our music teachers are fully qualified and hold PVG Enhanced Disclosure Registration. We like to practice what we preach, so you’ll find that most of our staff have performed alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry. We also have a long list of famous celebrities attending the school for tuition, including an Edinburgh based international writer, television hosts, various number 1 selling artists, a Hollywood movie star, a former chancellor of the exchequer and numerous football stars. Our singing lessons are a particular favourite for industry vocalists looking to keep their voice in tip-top shape.

Our musicians work with both adults and children (age 4+). The music school opens at 8am and closes at 10pm, 7 days a week, so we are available whenever is most convenient for you.

Our lessons take place in the beautiful Morningside neighbourhood of Edinburgh, and our building is just steps away from several major bus routes and just next door to South Morningside Primary School. Feel free to give us a call to speak with one of our friendly teachers who will be more than happy to help with organising a music lesson for you.

Get Ready

We give all our music students the opportunity to play live, either solo or as part of a band, and to record in the studio to make a demo. Our professional PR managers can help get you get off on the right foot when getting involved in the music industry.

More About Live Music Nights


We pride ourselves on the fact that all of our teachers have five essential traits: They are all fully qualified music teachers, they are fully registered on the PVG Scheme of Disclosure Scotland, they also have a wealth of teaching experience from schools, colleges and universities, many of our staff have played with some of the biggest names in the industry and, most importantly, they teach in a professional environment using the best equipment and resources at Morningside School of Music.

We are pleased to offer classical and popular music lessons in all instruments, including piano lessons and guitar lessons. We teach ABRSM grades, Rockschool grades and Trinity College London grades, but if you’re more interested in being in a band or just want to play at home to relax, then we have just the Edinburgh-based music lessons for you.
