A seminar for instrumental staff, music teachers and learning support teachers will look at issues facing children with difficulties of a dyslexic nature when learning a musical instrument.
The seminar, funded by the Scottish Arts Council at the Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh on October 26, will report on the latest research and offer practical suggestions on how to assist the young musicians.
Workshops on strings, brass, wind and percussion, led by professional musicians with a special interest, will be for instrumental staff from East Lothian and Edinburgh only. Other participants may observe.
A Pounds 5 administration fee will be charged. Further details from Margaret O'Connor, Cultural Services Manager, East Lothian Council, Council Buildings, Haddington EH41 3HA, tel: 01620 827631.
