The City Music Service works in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent schools to offer a wide variety of musical opportunities for over 8000 young people aged 2–18 each week.
City Music Service (CMS) delivers a high-quality music education that enhances the lives of pupils in Stoke-on-Trent through transformational experiences. We work hard to raise aspirations and improve attainment for children and young people.
We believe that making music is inspirational and enables pupils to realise their potential within a culture of inclusivity, team working and positive thinking.
Music is an educational building block and can improve learning skills and boost social development. It also encourages creativity, fosters team working, helps build life skills and underpins better behaviour. Music is fun and is for everyone!
