What an achievement! A huge thank you to Ruthven Music and every single person who has been involved in 12 hour playathon! 12-hours of continuous musical performances have raised an incredible Β£850 in aid of Sistema Scotland.

Online can still be made, so if you'd like to show your support click on the link below - let's see if we can get this fantastic total up to the Β£1000 mark!
We can't say thank you enough!

Ruthven Music and everyone who got involved and supported this incredible fundraising initiative, you are all absolutely incredible :) Every single penny you raised for Sistema Scotland will be going towards transforming children's lives!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
πŸ™ A big thank you to Ruthven Music who will be raising money for Sistema Scotland with a marathon 12-hour playathon this weekend - best of luck to all involved!

Anyone interested in doing some of their own fundraising to help us transform lives, we'd love to hear from you!
Behold the mozzarella piano! (Thanks for blessing us with this, Gillian! πŸ˜‚)
Three cheers to Jennifer for putting together a wonderful concert.
Can we pleee....ase change the profile pic now???
Hey guys,
I have an assignment for uni coming up that involves designing a mobile app and taking what users are looking for in them. I need a group of people that belong to a group or community so I would love to design my app around Ruthven Music.
I am basically looking for your ideas as to what would make a good app that involved Ruthven Music. Things such as what would make it good/bad and what sort of features you would think would be useful to have.
I am interested in your thoughts and ideas, I look forward to your responses.
You're amazing.
Good luck on your 1st day x
Sorry can't make the open day but wish you luck x

Who can believe this was 2 years ago already? So proud we managed to keep lessons going online without any breaks throughout ALL the lockdowns! I love how optimistic I was that it wouldn't be for too long πŸ˜‚ And now, online lessons are just a part of what the studio offers - so many of you are continuing to use them for all kinds of reasons, and it's great to be able to be so flexible 😊


Ruthven Strings is BACK! Tomorrow at 10am in the studio - see you there 🎻🎻🎻

Congratulations to Ellie for achieving a Distinction in her recent Piano Grade 6 Performance Exam with ABRSM - an excellent, very well deserved mark! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰


Did you know that at Ruthven Music 39.5% of our students are Adults? 37.5% are Secondary School age and 23% are under 12's - this really reflects our philosophy that NO ONE is too old to learn an instrument! There's nothing better than the joy an older student gets from learning something they've always wanted to, or coming back to an instrument they've played a long time ago!


Some excellent exam results from our recent ABRSM candidates!

Huge congratulations go to
Freya who passed her Initial Piano exam with Merit,
Alessia and Anshi who both passed Grade 2 Singing for Musical Theatre with Merit,
Matthew and Rachel who both passed Grade 3 Piano with Merit,
Isabella who passed Grade 3 Violin with Merit,
Destiny who passed Grade 4 Violin,
Allegria who passed Grade 5 Piano,
and Ellie who passed Grade 5 Music Theory with Distinction.

Well done to all of you! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


Ruthven Music is now closed for a short holiday until the 27th of June. Enjoy your week off!
