About music services
There are 165 music services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland who are members of the FMS (99% of all music services).
They provide primary and secondary schools with all they need to teach music: setting standards, and providing resources, equipment and training for music teachers. Music services employ about 12,000 teachers, tutors and assistants and teach over 2 million pupils every year. FMS members are the backbone of music education in this country.
