Our mission is to enable all young people in Hertfordshire to discover or develop their own unique musical voice and express themselves through the language of music.
As a DfE funded organisation through Arts Council England, Hertfordshire Music Service is perfectly placed to support the educational, social and emotional outcomes of your pupils.
The music service is here to support your school in the way you need, and there are some inspiring ways HMS can ensure music remains alive and well in your local school community.
