Aberdeen City Music School


ACMS is a national music school based at Dyce Academy in Aberdeen. The aim of the music school is to allow talented musicians to continue their general education whilst receiving expert tuition and additional time for music study.

All ACMS pupils are fully integrated into the general curricular and social life of the school. Since the centre opened in 2001, we have established ourselves as a centre of excellence for music in Scotland. We cater for performers of all music genres and encourage pupils to develop a broad range of musical skills based around performance.

Our facilities are tailor made and include first class boarding accommodation, practice rooms, ensemble rooms, recording facilities and a performance space. There is a large music library with over 6000 CDs and pieces of music. Pupils may board at the state of the art boarding facility on site, or if they live within a 3-mile radius, travel in on a daily basis.

At ACMS we provide regular opportunities for solo, chamber, jazz, orchestral, choral and Scottish traditional work.

ACMS @ Dyce Academy aims to develop excellent musicians who are also successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
