The City of Edinburgh Music School is a state-maintained music school in Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland. Founded as the Lothian Specialist Music School in 1980, it changed its name in 1996 when Lothian Regional Council was dissolved into four separate unitary councils. It is a non-residential school, and because it is funded by the City of Edinburgh Council, it charges no fees. Unlike residential music schools, pupils attend comprehensive schools for their academic classes: Flora Stevenson Primary and Broughton High School.

The school was the subject of BBC Scotland's EX:S documentary, The Music School, on 29 March 2005.
