COVID-19 Instrument Hire Help

We understand at these difficult times that some families will be finding payment of these invoices challenging, especially where you might have significantly reduced incomes. We do not want to let money be a barrier to your child continuing to learn on the instrument they have chosen and we have made funding available to support this. Please click here to complete the COVID-19 Instrument Hire Help form and email to mark.medland@gloucestershire.gov.uk

Services and support for music in your school - schools brochure 2016-17

We're here to help you bring music to life in your school, and ensure that all pupils enjoy the benefits - for learning and for life - that music can bring to them. Your school will have received our new schools services brochure by now (addressed to your head and/or head of music), but if not and you'd like a copy, please let us know. You can also download the PDF here.

The brochure includes details of:

  • how your school can work with, influence, and benefit from the Hub
  • help for schools leadership teams and teachers
  • whole class instrumental teaching from trumpets to technology 
  • help with your schools singing strategy from our new Singing Champion 
  • help for young people at risk of exclusion or poor outcomes
  • instrument hire and repair (free hire to those on low incomes)
  • rehearsal and recording spaces and programmes available for schools
  • and more

You can find out about all these services, and how to book/find out more using the buttons to the left.

Hub partner The Music Works has produced a brochure providing more detail of its specific services to schools - including music technology; rock, pop, band and urban music; inclusive singing, beatboxing and rapping and more.
