Welcome to OM Music Sanctuary!


We are a small community project based in Edinburgh, where anyone experiencing isolation due to mental health or other challenges can come and get involved in making music. We aim to create a friendly, calm and safe environment for everyone who attends to sing, play, chat or just listen with a cup of tea!


We are usually open between 11am and 4:30pm on weekdays — our timetable can be seen here. We would be grateful if new visitors could please come between 11am and 12pm on Mondays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, if possible. 



 We offer:

  • group lessons in guitar, bass, drum kit, hand drumming, piano/keyboard and singing
  • jamming sessions - bring your instrument (or borrow some of ours) and have a go at a song or piece you like, join in with the group, or simply come and listen!
  • songwriting sessions - bring your ideas for words or tunes (or both!) and see what music can emerge...
  • recording sessions - book a slot in our studio to create your own recording

Additionally, on some Saturday afternoons (1—4pm), we run the Electric Cafe, where our studio band plays some feel-good music and we have open mic slots for anyone who would like to play. Everyone is welcome to come and listen - tea, coffee and biscuits are provided! For the dates, please check here.
