Sistema Scotland is a high-quality music education and social change programme that works intensively with children, young people and families within targeted communities.
Sistema Scotland runs five Big Noise programmes in Raploch (Stirling), Govanhill (Glasgow), Torry (Aberdeen), Douglas (Dundee), and Wester Hailes (Edinburgh). We started with Big Noise Raploch in April 2008, with six musicians supporting 35 young schoolchildren. We now work with over 3,200 children and young people across the five cities.
Sistema Scotland uses the symphony orchestra as a community through which children gain an invaluable range of life skills and experiences. They develop confidence, teamwork, resilience, pride and aspiration as well as the capacity to work hard, supporting them to reach their potential and lead successful and fulfilled lives.
