Awarded the Major Trophy by the National Music Council of Great Britain 2009

Since the music service began back in the 1950s, thousands of young musicians have reaped the benefits of its musical tuition and support.

The music service has nurtured talent and brought musicians together for high quality musical ensembles. These ensembles include orchestral, wind, brass bands, jazz, choirs and percussion. It now offers music support to all primary, secondary and special schools, and sixth form colleges across the city.

Many ex-students have made music their profession, and a high percentage of the country’s leading orchestras have at least one of its musicians.

The music service has also supplied a steady stream of high quality musicians to the music industry, including in theatre, film, pop and light music industries.
