Southampton Music Service

Southampton Music Service is the lead partner of the Southampton Music Hub.

Southampton Music Service (SMS) brings musical resource, specialism and activity to all communities in our city. In addition to delivering specialist music curriculum teaching in schools, SMS also provides weekly instrumental and vocal tuition, concerts, special events, family music making, workshops and holiday courses.

Southampton Music Services is the lead provider of structured children’s music education in the city, offering instrumental and vocal provision, curriculum teaching and ambitious musical projects throughout the school term. Operating for over fifteen years, SMS has designed classes to foster a lifetime love of music for children from Key Stage One through to Key Stage Five.

We believe that every young person’s education matters. Our highly-trained teachers are committed to supporting high quality standards in all schools. Undergoing regular INSET training, continued CPD and following the National Plan for Music Education (NPME), the tuition our expert music teachers provide is of outstanding educational value.

Musical activity will be driven across the city’s schools through our five key strategies including our First Access programs, Vocal and Instrumental Strategies, Ensembles, Events and CPD opportunities. Through this we are able to shape a broad and dynamic culture which inspires learning, creates artistic ambition and maximises the impact on the musical lives of every young person in Southampton.
