Due to the continued school closures, all CMS instrumental lessons have ceased in school. However, the CMS will continue to support music in the borough by providing resources to both pupils at home, and those remaining in school.


The music service office will be closed but the service can be contacted via the email

Please note, the phone will not be monitored.

Additionally, all planned events this year are cancelled.

We apologise for the disappointment that this decision will cause but the health and safety of pupils, parents and staff of the CMS is of the upmost importance to us.


The Barking and Dagenham Community Music Service, the lead organisation for the Barking and Dagenham Education Music Hub, provides a wide range of musical opportunites for Children and Young people across the borough.


The LBBD’s MEH vision is to: ‘work in partnership with schools, academies and free schools and other settings to provide opportunities for every young person in the Borough to develop through music and to benefit from high quality musical experiences.’
