Music service jazzes up its approach

12th July 1996 at 01:00
Hertfordshire County Music service has won this year's major award presented by the National Music Council of Great Britain in association with the Council of Local Education Authorities.

The service was praised for increasing its instrumental teaching. It has expanded its Saturday morning music schools; established a county choir, jazz ensemble, guitar ensemble and recorder consort; commissioned new orchestral and choral music; appointed five new instrumental co-ordinators; introduced music for under-fives; made an additional Pounds 30,000 LEA grant to music; and spent more than Pounds 45,000 on enhanced provision of free instruments. Eighteen thousand pupils, 12 per cent of Hertfordshire's school population, are taught by the music service.

Birmingham, Cornwall, Rochdale, Sefton, Shropshire, West Glamorgan and Wolverhampton were all awarded diplomas.
