The Music for Schools Foundation is a non-profit making, registered charity providing small group Brass and Woodwind lessons. We have been established for 25 years and in that time have provided lessons to over 50,000 pupils in primary schools all across the country.

We have an amazing team of tutors that are passionate about bringing music to young people.

Our aim is to make music affordable and accessible for everyone, so let's get started!

Theia has finally played in
her first school concert and is preparing for her grade 3 flute exam in the spring. It has been a stop-start, difficult road to keep progressing during the pandemic, but her perseverance is due in large part to your tutoring, and your faith in her. Now she is playing in a group, she is very glad she kept going!
