Welcome to the Blackpool Music Service Website.
Formed in 2002, Blackpool Music Service is a nationally respected, financially self-sufficient, customer led service which, according to the Federation of Music Services (2011) provides ‘outstanding value for money’. This observation was echoed by the National Music Council which awarded its prestigious ‘Major Trophy’ to Blackpool Music Service in November 2011.
The service provides weekly musical tuition in all Blackpool Schools and Academies and, in 90% of our Children's Centres. Its constant drive to improve the experiences and opportunities of all Blackpool children makes the Music Centre a fun place to work and rehearse and staged events have shown that Blackpool children have exceptional talent when given the opportunity.
In September 2012 the service was offered Music Education Hub status. This has ensured future DfE grants until 2015 and an expansion of our services, partners, inspirational events and, enjoyable music-making for all Blackpool children.
