About Hounslow Music Service
Hounslow Music Service is a charity that provides high-quality instrumental and vocal tuition to school-aged children across the London Borough of Hounslow.
Our range of programmes supports the development of musical talent, both in and out of the school environment. We offer instrumental and vocal lessons in and out of school; whole class instrumental teaching at primary level; a structured, progressive programme of bands, orchestras and choirs; and inspirational projects with partners such as the Philharmonia Orchestra. We also manage a large stock of instruments which are available to for our students and schools to hire, and we open our music library to support school-based bands and orchestras.
Music education has been shown to have many benefits for both learning skills and life skills, including:
- Fostering team working
- Boosting personal and social development, and
- Underpinning better behaviour
We want all of the Borough’s children and young people to have access to these benefits; we give them opportunities to engage with, to enjoy, and to be inspired by music, whatever their background.
