Welcome to Sheffield Music School

Sheffield Music School is a registered charity in existence for over 30 years, dedicated to providing the highest quality music coaching for the talented Young Musicians of Sheffield and the surrounding area. Housed at Sheffield High School, seventy students and fourteen staff bring musical vibrancy and excellence to Saturday mornings. With a strong focus on chamber music and solo performance, the school encourages the best from its members in a fun and informal atmosphere.

We have a very talented and diverse staff who are teachers, performers and composers in their own right with special interests varying from modern jazz to organ and choral music. We aim to develop a number of skills for the students including choral, general musicianship and aural. Junior Music School students fill in weekly listening diaries and take part in many activities such as improvisation, composition and performance.

Sheffield Music School aims to provide this service for the lowest possible cost, and offers a number of scholarships. It is our policy that nobody should be unable to attend for financial reasons. To this end, we are always looking for grants and financial support and would welcome any help.

Many of our students go on to study music at Music College or University, and we hope that all of our members carry with them a love of music throughout their lives.
