Somerset Music delivers a range of whole class and large group music tuition in a variety of instruments including brass, strings, wind instruments, drumming and samba.  In the main, these sessions are delivered to children in Key Stage 2 but we welcome the opportunity to work with groups of older children as they progress through their education.
In addition we are increasing the work that we do with Key Stage 1; introducing them to music at Foundation Stage.
We are reputed nationally for our music technology provision and deliver in the county's special schools, with great success.
In addition to the above, Somerset Music are delighted to be the Lead Partner for the Singing Strategy for Somerset, on behalf of Sound Foundation Somerset, the Music Hub for the county. We will be working in partnership with Jackdaws to organise and coordinate the implementation of the Singing Strategy as decided by Sound Foundation Somerset.
The Singing Strategy  offer for the academic year 2019/20 is now available and aims to enable both teachers and pupils to progress in their use of singing within schools. A CPD session/workshop is available for all schools and there is the opportunity to purchase additional hours and participate in Gifted and Talented Workshops and Singing Festivals across the County.
