Tees Valley Music Service (TVMS) has been appointed by Arts Council England (ACE) to lead the Tees Valley Music Hub for Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool and Redcar & Cleveland from September 2024, as part of an ambitious national programme to provide high-quality music education for all Children and Young People.

Having served the region for many decades, now re-appointed as Hub Lead Organisation for the Tees Valley region, TVMS will now receive over £1 million from the Department of Education to continue the amazing activity they already provide which meets local need whilst expanding opportunities regionally for all young people in Teesside. This funding includes money to coordinate music education in the local area, plus funding to invest in new musical instruments, equipment and technology tailored to the needs of children and young people across the Tees Valley, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. Their work with people of all ages, including families and older people, has been recognised by ACE as a great way of connecting with and understand local communities.

“I like all of it: the singing and the drama. It makes me feel really happy and makes me forget all the worries I have. Also, I like that you get to lots of activities and learn instruments”Year 3 Student, The Oak Tree Primary Academy

“I’m delighted that the Arts Council have recognised the amazing track record Tees Valley Music Service has had as Hub Lead for the past 12 years and have re-appointed us as Lead Partner of the Music Hub. It is wonderful that we will be able to continue and create even more opportunities for children, young people, their families, and members of local communities across the region. Involvement in musical activity really can change your life!”Susan Robertson, TVMS Manager
