North Yorkshire County Music Service

Learning to play a musical instrument is an experience that is truly beneficial to all children.  Whether they go on to become the next great composer or performer, or play purely for personal enjoyment, they will need to take the first step to learning to play by having some lessons.

In music lessons in the classroom our children are given percussion instruments to explore composition and performance.  It is not possible to offer more than this within our music curriculum.

North Yorkshire County Music Service however are there to provide more specialist teaching for a range of instruments.

Music has a power of forming the character and should therefore be introduced into the education of the young.


Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything… Without music, life would be an error.
