Welcome to the Hampshire Music Service (HMS)

Our commitment is to give every child a chance to participate, enjoy and achieve by making music together. The benefits of music are very wide-reaching. Feedback from schools, parents and children show that the opportunities we offer through Hampshire Music Service have a very high impact indeed.
