Skip main menu

Cumbria Music Service consists of a team of specialist music teachers who provide instrumental and vocal tuition, classroom curriculum support and deliver the First Access (Wider Opportunities) programme throughout the schools in Cumbria. Instrumental and vocal tuition is offered in groups to both Primary and Secondary schools whilst curriculum support and the First Access (Wider Opportunities) programme are provided to whole classes in Primary schools.

We offer pupils a wide range of musical experiences based upon modern teaching strategies and provide performance opportunities through our regular ensemble and extended activities programme. The opportunities on offer range from regular local ensemble groups, involvement in local music centre activities, area workshops, and residential weekends through to Cumbria Youth ensemble courses. Cumbria Music Service operates an Instrument Lease Scheme which is available to any young person in Cumbria and an Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme for any young person undertaking lessons with one of our teachers.

Following a competitive bid process to the Arts Council, Cumbria Music Service has been awarded funding up to March 2015 to be the lead organisation for the recently established Cumbria Music Education Hub.  The Music Service plays a key role in facilitating a range of music practitioners and organisations to enable a cohesive and joined up approach towards Music Education across Cumbria.
