School Music Service

Music Service

From Sepember 2015 the council's music service is being provided in a different way.

The Isle of Wight Music Education Hub will be an independent body that commissions the First Access music lessons in schools, supports ensemble music, the singing strategy, supports the increase of young people playing music on the island and has a responsibilty to oversee the music curriculum in schools.

The service has now moved to 23-25 Medina Avenue, Newport, Isle of Wight. 

You can contact the music teachers for information about lessons from September 2015 at  If you need any information about music tutition up to the end of July 2015 please contact Library HQ on 823824.

Instrumental and ensemble lessons will still be provided by the same group of committed and professional music teachers under their new cooperative named 'Wight Music Tuition'. 

The Music Centre will continue to operate in the same way as before and will continue with its programme of developing the talent of groups of young musicians in playing together.

The existing offer to young island musicians will continue under the new arrangements including an extensive programme of workshops and concerts with the Saturday morning Music Centre, which meets on a 24 term-time weekend basis.
