We can teach your music curriculum for you. Our Primary and Secondary Consultants have years of experience in advising and working with schools to supply the highest quality music provision as part of the curriculum. We also offer CPD for your staff and INSET days. In addition, Sussex Music School also has a full online Primary Curriculum package available - we have a great track record in this type of provision.

We have a great track record for online provision of music teaching, since March 2021 we have delivered lessons online when needed in and out of school time and with many pupils actually opting for this method of delivery over lessons in-person.

Music Class

Our professional music teachers receive training, light-touch monitoring and ongoing support as necessary from our senior team. Only the best teachers in the field locally are accredited to SMS.
Valuing our music teachers is paramount as this will translate into the best musical experiences for our students.

Sussex Music School only employs the best music teachers across Sussex and this enables us to provide exceptional quality music tuition both privately and in schools across Sussex. All our teachers are full DBS checked and safeguarded and where possible local to the pupil.

Here at Sussex Music School, profits are invested back into local Music projects and supporting and promoting music for all. We invest in training and development for our teachers, including our mentoring programme for talented teachers at the beginning of their career. In addition we offer free instrument hire to Pupil Premium students, scholarships to some of our most talented and hard working young learners, regular concerts for pupils to enjoy and, as the business grows, community music centres and summer schools.

"I am really looking forward to seeing your staff (and you!) back in our schools continuing to provide a first-class musical experience to our children.  Music is such a vital part of everybody's life, and I am convinced that it will do more than its fair share to lift children's and adults' spirits in the post-lockdown era!"
