Norfolk Music Service sits within Educator Solutions, a not-for-profit trading enterprise, wholly owned by Norfolk County Council. The Music Service acts as the lead organisation for Norfolk Music Education Hub, a partnership of over 100 organisations, coming together to provide the best possible music education for the children and young people of Norfolk. Since the change in leadership of the organisation in September 2016, there has been a real appetite for increased partnership working which has created opportunities for development of the core offer and scope for expansion of the types of activities we present. The Music Service needs to continue to facilitate high quality teaching and learning and demonstrate excellent value for money whilst improving upon the breadth of offer and forging lasting relationships with schools, partners and stakeholders.
