Welcome to Bolton Music Service

Bolton Music Service works in Bolton and Blackburn with Darwen. We work with all sectors of the local community to increase access to quality music making, to raise standards of music education across all schools and academies and to provide exciting musical pathways for children through tuition and music ensembles.

We are teaching around 8,000 children weekly to play a musical instrument, teaching the music curriculum in over a third of our local primary schools and running 45 weekly out-of-school bands, choirs and orchestras, including the recently launched T-Rock for budding rock musicians. Many of our students come through the Music Service and then go on to play in regional ensembles like the Halle Youth Orchestra and the Greater Manchester Youth Brass Band and in national groups like the National Youth Choir/ Brass Band / Orchestra.

We pride ourselves in looking after the needs of each child and providing the specialist tuition required for each child to realise their potential.
