Education

Arunda views education and outreach work as a vital part of their creative vision, aiming to make music both fun and accessible for all. Arunda performs regularly for Music in Hospitals and is part of the prestigious Live Music Now! scheme as founded by Yehudi Menuhin which is dedicated to promoting live music to those who would not normally have access to it.

All of Arunda's workshops are specially tailored to suit the requirements of the school/community venue, incorporating the four strands of Curriculum for Excellence. The ladies like to include participatory elements such as conducting and can structure workshop delivery around themes such as 'Meet the instruments' or 'Rhythm and Pulse' in order to achieve an understanding in a specific area of music making. Arunda can also deliver a workshop based around SQA concepts.

As a trio, Arunda has given given workshops all over Scotland and in the Netherlands working with people from nursery age to the elderly. Individually, their experience has taken them further afield leading workshops around the rest of the UK, in France, and Mauritius as well as working for outreach programmes such as Youth Music Initiative, The Feis Rois, Enterprise Music Scotland and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland MusicWorks.

Arunda participated in Enterprise Music Scotland's 'Train and Sustain' CPD project led by renowned animateur Paul Rissmann and Rachel Drury. Arunda has also taken part in specialist early years music training with Lucinda Geoghegan and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.

The members of Arunda are dedicated music educators. All members are available for private instrumental tuition in the central belt of Scotland and enquiries can be made via the Contact page.
