It has been reported in The Scotsman newspaper that the success of Scotland’s free music tuition policy is in “jeopardy”, with four local authorities potentially reducing their own spending commitments towards the provision of the service.

Following a long and successful campaign against the imposition of fees, the Scottish Government will now give £12 million in funding for the forthcoming year for the “removal of fees”- a policy that in 2022/23 saw over 61,000 children take part in lessons, nearly 9% of the total school roll.

It is understood the funding was “not to meet the full cost of providing the service”, with councils also having to contribute to align with their government funding.
