Through Life Changing Musical Experiences

Updated 20th January 2021

NEW - Daily Lockdown Learning sessions on our Youtube Channel - please click here to find out what's on offer and how to take part!

Welcome to our website.

In light of the Jan 4th lockdown announcement, we will be reviewing our online resources and contacting schools with links and guidance. Please find current information and links below. We will also be regularly adding new resources to our Lockdown Learning Section.

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 etc.

We are continually reviewing our Risk Assessments with regard to Covid 19 - LSMS Covid 19 Risk Assessment 20.01.21. DfE and ACE are keen that music services, hubs, teachers are as flexible and supportive to schools as possible as long as activities are safe and compliant. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want further support, advice or clarification.

We have developed a range of FREE fully planned and Covid-aware Schemes of Work for schools, along with FREE Consultation sessions for Primary, Secondary, SEND, Music Technology and Singing.

We have also been working on FREE Primary School and Secondary School resources to help music education continue where music staff and / or instruments are unavailable.

Visit our Musical Solutions page to find out how we can help with innovative distance learning. We are committed to delivering high quality music education and are working with Schools to ensure that young people's music education can continue.
