The Music Service

Working with young people, schools and a number of strategic partners, we aim to enable, enhance and enrich the music education available to students in and around Birmingham.

All of our staff members are screened, qualified and receive regular training to ensure that we provide the very best service, every time.

Our teachers have been handpicked for their passion and drive when it comes to delivering a high-quality music service. This enables us to provide a unique and valuable offer to children and young people.

Services For Education Music Service is the lead organisation for the Birmingham Music Education Partnership (BMEP) which deploys the central government funding to extend and coordinate music education provision for all reporting to Arts Council England.
