Music Provision in Schools

Our Music Service provides schools and settings, children, young people and others with a better musical education, regardless of their background or situation.

We hope to build memorable experiences for young people across the country and that starts with our ensembles, school support services, exams and resources.

We are really passionate about the true benefits of music and just want to share that with others.

One of our main aims is to help bring more music to schools across Birmingham.

We do this by offering a variety of in-school services, including special workshops, music teachers for hire, annual reporting, assembly support, advisory visits and training courses.

We have wide-ranging capabilities so if there is something music-related you need, chances are, we can provide it.

We have a new online booking form for music tuition in schools – you can access it here.

You may or may not have noticed but, due to government funding cuts, music provision in schools has declined over the last few years.

Sadly this means a lot of children and young people don’t get an opportunity to enjoy and benefit from music-making.

We firmly believe that music can have a positive impact on the lives of children which is why we set up Services For Education in the first place.

All of the money raised from our music and school support services is reinvested into creating new and innovative projects for children in Birmingham.

At Services For Education, we are extremely passionate about music and the huge benefits it has for pupils and schools.

Our music team are highly experienced and have been going for over 50 years. We now work with 384 schools across Birmingham to provide music.

We have worked in close partnership with schools in Birmingham for more than sixty years and have achieved more in this area than any other organisation.

Supporting 38,000 children a week, we work with over 380 schools and loan instruments to over 27,000 young musicians. We can provide expert tuition on more than thirty instruments in a range of styles and cultures.

Music really does change lives for the better and we’re here to make that happen.
