Enriching & Connecting Your World
Through Life Changing Musical Experiences

Updated 28th July 2021

We want to let you know about some important changes that are going to be taking place over the next few months.

Over the past year, we have been planning on how we can best connect with and support the young people of Leicester & Leicestershire with their music making. We have a new energy and direction, which we believe will begin to make a huge difference to the lives of young people, reflecting their musical needs and interests and providing fully inclusive opportunities allowing everyone to be involved in music making.

To mark this change, and the beginning of a new journey and chapter in our history, (we've been teaching music to young people in Leicestershire since 1948), we have made the decision to change our name to the more inclusive 'Leicestershire Music'. We'll still be working in partnership with schools and other local and regional music education organisations however any partnership working will now come under the name of 'Leicestershire Music Hub'.

Over the summer months we will be gradually working towards our re-launch in September 2021 but you may notice some changes to our emails, Social Media accounts and Website before then.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with and for you in our next exciting chapter as Leicestershire Music!

Have a great summer

All at Leicester-Shire Schools Music - soon to be Leicestershire Music


Welcome to our website.

As we head into the summer break, we'd like to thank Students, Parents, Teachers and Staff for all their hard work in both continuing to make music, and ensuring that music could continue in whatever way was available. We look forward to meeting up in the new academic year for face to face learning, training and performing.

At Leicester-Shire Schools Music Service, the health and well-being of our audiences, musicians, participants and staff is of the highest priority. We will continue to support musicians, staff, parents and our audiences as best as we can through these difficult times. We'd like to thank everybody for their understanding and patience.

Our Covid 19 Information & Guidance page contains the latest guidance for Leicester and Leicestershire schools on safe musical learning. This page is updated regularly as new guidance is released from the DfE and we are continually reviewing our Risk Assessments with regard to Covid 19 - LSMS Covid 19 Risk Assessment 19.07.21. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want further support, advice or clarification.
