New IMS teaching in Paignton

PrestonPreston Primary School in Paignton has recently taken on our services, spearheaded by our new manager John Sipple who is doing a superb job of managing our Paignton & South Hams area. John will initially be providing drum kit tuition and musical support to the school although in the future may be able to expand the tuition to other instruments.

As with all new schools we have a showcase booked where we can demonstrate musical instruments' uses and explain how they work. If you would like a musical demonstration for your school, please contact us using

IMS joins the prestigious National Federation of Music Services

BannerResulting from the recent changes in government policy, the NFMS has opened its doors to private music services and Instrumental Music Services Ltd is one of the first to take advantage of this new initiative.

Up until now membership has only been open to LEA Music Services but due to declining funding and disappearing music services countrywide the NFMS has recognised that a new approach is needed to maintain and improve music tuition provision and IMS is at the forefront.

Membership will enable us to continue to improve our standard of provision and also allow us to have a say in future music tuition policy.

And finally...

We hope you have enjoyed reading our Summer Term 2012 E-newsletter. Please don't hesitate to get in touch or visit for more information about our musical service to schools.

Kind regards

No more admin for your office

Using IMS can significantly reduce the workload on your office staff when it comes to putting on music tuition - IMS is totally independent of your office staff. We deal with all paperwork and management of peripatetic teachers leaving your staff free to focus on other areas of work.

This term we have assisted three schools to significantly decrease administration time by providing all management and payment to their team of Instrumental Tutors. The Head Teachers and office staff quickly voiced their appreciation.

If you have peripatetic teachers who visit your school that you think could benefit from our support, why not get in touch? We can support them to help ensure a common approach to your music provision that could save you time, as well as providing all the other benefits that come from using our music service.

Please contact us on for a free information pack.
