Get Playing

Whether you sing, play an instrument, create or enjoy listening to music, evidence shows that engaging with music from a young age has many benefits. Plus, it's great fun!

What is a music service?

There are music services and instrumental teaching services across the UK which support the musical learning of children in a variety of ways. This includes the provision of instrumental and vocal tuition, ensembles, choirs and bands, advice and guidance for schools and professional development for teachers. In England, music services may be part of a Music Hub – groups of organisations working together to create joined-up music education provision.

Find out more about music education in England, Scotland and Wales.
