About HSS

We specialise in teaching music in groups to children and young adults. We teach without music, by ear and in a fun, relaxed and nurturing environment. 


All of our tutors are professional musicians with years of teaching experience. We teach a range of genres of music including folk, baroque, classical and contemporary. We teach polyphonically with an emphasis on listening and making a beautiful sound together. All of our participants sing together in the morning to develop ear training, musical understanding and find their singing voice!


We believe music should be for all and as such all of our classes are £40 for a week of tuition. We are subsidised by a number of charities, foundations and the Scottish government. We are supported by the local community who provide help in kind. All of our classes are in the centre of Huntly so that local residents can walk and those from farther afield may take public transport to our classes. 


We have been running for nine years. Every year we ask our participants to evaluate us. This helps us to continue to improve our school for future years. Our administration is largely voluntary.
