If you would like to find out more about a service listed below, please speak to your Area Leader above or contact our Maidstone office.

Agency Projects
Agency Projects are set up by a nursery, school, academy, college or other learning centre, requiring a specialist teacher for their delivery. These projects can include the tuition of groups that have been set up by the school; direction of school ensembles; provision of curriculum support work; continuation for students who have completed their Music Plus year.

Instrument Hire
Everything you need to know about hiring instruments for your school.

Financial Assistance 
Kent Music is committed to enabling children and young people access musical opportunities. The Kent Music Bursary provides financial support to 5-24 year olds, living in Kent, excluding Medway, who meet specific financial criteria, and covers 75% of activity fees for one musical activity per academic year. Schools should direct parents or carers to the application forms and full details on our Financial Assistance page; we cannot accept applications direct from a school. If you have any queries, please contact Gail Batty on gbatty@kent-music.com.

Schools Funding
In order for schools to qualify for ring fenced funding for music education, Kent Music requires all schools in Kent to complete an annual survey in the spring of each year.

Kent Music Roadshow – Bach to the Future
Bach to the Future is an hour long FREE interactive Roadshow aimed at KS2 and KS3 students. The Roadshow aims to inspire students to learn a musical instrument and to encourage an understanding of just how valuable music is to our world and to our everyday lives.

CPD and Training
Kent Music offers a range of creative, resourceful and up-to-date professional development for music educators in the county.
