Wakefield Music Services
The Lead Organisation for Wakefield Music Education Hub - Music for All!
Wakefield Music Services (WMS) is the Lead Organisation for the Wakefield Music Education Hub and has been providing quality inclusive music teaching and opportunities to the young people in Wakefield since 1974. Since then the service has grown and expanded, broadening its provision and range of instruments, genres and activities that it offers.

WMS runs seventy ensembles and provides musical tuition to approximately 7,500 young people each week across all Wakefield communities. Since the formation of Wakefield Music Education Hub in September 2012 existing partnerships have strengthened further, new ones forged, resulting in additional musical opportunities for the young people of Wakefield. Access and musical opportunities continue to expand and develop and Music Centres and ensembles continue to flourish.

The service is governed and supported by the LA and was proud to receive a ‘Low Risk’ annual review from Arts Council England for the fourth year running! The recent review also highlighted that WMS was well equipped to deliver all Core and Extension Roles expected of Music Education Hubs. Previous to this WMS was judged as an ‘Outstanding’ service in a National Peer Moderation Evaluation Programme.
