Welcome To York Music Service

Musical instrument tuition in schools

We provide the opportunity for anyone of any age to learn to play a musical instrument or to improve their existing skills and to make music with others.


What we do

Working in the City of York and across surrounding areas of Yorkshire, we  want everyone to be able to experience the benefits of playing a musical instrument; team work and social skills, concentration and self-discipline, self-esteem and creativity.…..and fun!

Our speciality is providing lessons and musical activities for young people with guidance from our fantastic tutor team. You can even hire an instrument through us.

So if you’d like to arrange instrument lessons for your child then click on the 'Sign Up' button for more information and let's get started!
