Cumbria Music Service

About The Hub

We are a partnership that brings together organisations from across Cumbria and beyond to deliver the best music education for children and young people. We work together to create joined up, high quality music experience in and out of school, getting the most from government funding for music education for young people in Cumbria and to deliver the National Plan for Music Education. 

Cumbria Music Hub is funded by Arts Council England and led by Cumbria Music Service.
