As we enter the second schools’ lockdown there will be no face to face teaching until further notice. Music-making continues, and we ask all pupils and parents to visit our Music at Home pages which will continue to provide help and support for everyone having lessons with us in the borough.

The music service office remains closed but, contact can be made via email.

Ensembles will continue virtually and we hope to add to our growing library of online performances.



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.’
