As pupils return to school the Music Service is preparing to support music-making in and outside of schools. Face to face ensembles won’t be happening just yet, but exciting plans are being made to keep music alive in the borough. Our Music at Home pages will continue to provide support for pupils as well as examples of the music we have been making over the lockdown period.

The music service office now open 9:00 – 3:30 Mon – Fri, and can be contacted via email and phone.

You can also view our Lockdown Orchestra videos, recorded remotely throughout the Summer and Autumn terms.


A new Introductory Music Theory Course is now available from the Music Service – details are available here.


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.’
