Welcome to our new service - HMS ensemble membership.

Currently you have to pay for every ensemble that your child takes part in, and the cost can become expensive. We have listened to your feedback and developed a cost-effective way for your child to join as many ensembles as they would like, in any of our centres at one fixed price. 

For £109 per term your child can join as many ensembles as they want, in any centre. This means that if they do any more than two ensembles you begin to save money and all additional ensembles after two are essentially free. 

You can still access ensembles individually and the prices for individual ensembles are:

Ensemble durationCost per term

40 minute “Chamber” ensemble


1 hour ensemble


1.5 hour ensemble


2 hour ensemble


30 min ensemble

This shorter ensemble length only applies to ensembles where a shorter length is needed for specific educational purposes, such as early years or SEND.


If you want to join the HMS ensemble membership all you need to do is select it when signing up for music lessons, then as you sign up for each ensemble individually it gets added to the membership programme.

Our County Groups, such as the County Youth Orchestra, Hertfordshire School Symphony Orchestra, and the County Youth Choir, are not included in the HMS ensemble membership package due to the additional, advanced level of support from nationally recognised contributors.
