Welcome to the Tinderbox Project, a dynamic hub for youth music and arts and Edinburgh.
Bringing together young people and professionals from around the city, the Tinderbox Project is a vibrant mix of orchestras, bands, artists, voices, colours and cultures. We provide a range of workshops, programmes, festivals and public events, aiming to inspire young people and involve them in the exciting contemporary arts scene in Edinburgh and beyond.

Frontiers Orchestra is a new, open-access and contemporary youth orchestra that invites Edinburgh’s young people to come together and build a band unlike anything the city has seen before! It is open to young people aged 11-25 on any instrument, any standard, as well as those keen to learn but who don’t play anything yet.
Bringing together orchestral instruments, samba drums and electronic instruments, and led by an exciting mix of professional musicians, bandleaders and community music specialists, Frontiers offers a fantastic opportunity to any young person aged 11-25 wishing to develop their music skills.
Have a look at the trailer video here.
If you are interested in getting involved, or are part of a school or organisation and would like to book an independent taster workshop, please do not hesitate to get in touch at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
Frontiers Orchestra is put together by Tinderbox Project & Oi Musica, and has been funded by Creative Scotland.
