ArtForms Music is the music service within Childrens's Services, and the lead organisation within the Leeds Music Education Partnership (the music education hub for Leeds). Working in schools and out of school, we provide a wide range of learning experiences for children and young people. ArtForms and LMEP provide free consultation with senior leaders or school governors to help schools plan and implement high quality music experiences for their pupils.
We are delighted to be able to confirm that LMEP will continue to offer Arts Council funded support for Whole Class, Small Group and National Curriculum Music tuition provided by ArtForms in the academic year 2017 - 18. Funding will be in the form of a 'cash back' and will be subject to schools and academies completing the relevant application form.
Music learning enhances achievement and attainment for all, as well as enriching the life of your school. Working with ArtForms Music your school will be able to access a wide range of services to improve the quality of your pupils' music learning.
We provide instrumental and vocal lessons pupils in Leeds schools, National Curriculum teaching, Accompanying Pianists and Ensemble Conductors.
Curriculum Enrichment activities include a menu of cross curricular workshops, projects and resources, as well as performances in schools from a wide range of ensembles via the LMEP 'Live Music in Schools' offer.
Out-of-school music experiences are provided through the City of Leeds Youth Music groups (CLYM), Music Clubs and community Music Centres (also open to adults).
Our Inclusive Music Team offer a range of services to support children with additional needs to access music education.
Music Connect provides CPD in music and network support to teachers in all schools.
ArtForms music staff are carefully recruited and trained in up-to-date methods of classroom, instrumental and vocal teaching. Our management team are responsible for quality assurance to ensure that children and young people have the best possible musical experience.
