Dorset Music Service during COVID-19

At Dorset Music Service (DMS), along with the rest of our Dorset Council colleagues, the health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff, school colleagues and the wider music education community is our highest priority.

This is a fast-changing and difficult situation for us all and we aim to support our music-making community as best we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding so far.

Cancelled music sessions

We've had to stop the following with immediate effect:

  • face-to-face delivery of instrumental tuition
  • ensemble rehearsals
  • weekly Beginner Friendly Groups (BFG) gatherings

Online music resources

Find the online music resources we've put together for you to use during this time.

If you're a current DMS tuition customer who'd like to take up our offer of online support with resources and tuition (where we can) email us at DMS with your child's name and school and we'll contact you as soon as we can.

The Dorset Music Service is the main provider of music provision within Dorset.
