About our Music Education Hub


If you live or attend a school in Barnsley and you would like to learn how to play an instrument or develop your singing ability, Barnsley Music Hub is the best place to start!

Barnsley Music Hub is a group of organisations that all deliver music learning. Using the hub is a great way to find the best option for you. 


Barnsley Music Service is the organisation that leads the hub. If you go to school in Barnsley you may have already heard of them. You might even have had lessons already, maybe as part of a whole class.


After Barnsley Music Service, we have a big group of what we call ‘hub partners’. These are organisations that also offer music teaching and opportunities for musicians to develop.
