Get Playing 2x1 simple

Hertfordshire Music Service is proud to be joining the national campaign by Music Mark called ‘Get Playing’; offering an exciting opportunity to get more young people into music.

Our ‘Get Playing’ project has the ambition to enable and inspire 2,000 young people to start instrumental music lessons across the county.

These sessions will take place in partnership with schools and music centres until the end of March 2023.

What can we offer you?

We provided a musician to run a musical instrument session in your childs school. We showcased instruments that young people may be interested in learning.

You now have two options:

  1. Free group taster lessons at your school. These take place each week for half a term.
  2. Book lessons – if you would prefer to fast track to individual or shared lessons, you will receive one free lesson.

What about the instrument?

We understand that investing in an instrument, without knowing if your child will enjoy playing, can be expensive.

To help, we will provide your child with a free instrument loan during the taster lessons, and if they choose to continue learning, until the next term.

If you choose to fast track, we will also provide your child with a free instrument loan until the next term.
