Hertfordshire Music Service believes in making every child's music matter. As a team within Hertfordshire County Council's Children's Services are committed to supporting world class standards in schools through music and supporting all children including those from our most vulnerable families.

Five strategic strands will drive musical activity across the county's schools, music centres, other community settings and on-line. By creating a diverse range of opportunities with our partners across these settings and with a portfolio of fully traded, co-funded and fully funded programmes we are able to maximise our impact on the musical lives of children and young people in Hertfordshire.
