Ethos of the City of Belfast School of Music

The role of the City of Belfast School of Music, an integral part of the Music Service of the Education Authority is to ensure that as many young people as possible gain musical insights that will enrich their entire lives. Above all, we want to encourage young people to enjoy music. We believe passionately that the process of learning to play a musical instrument or to sing offers immense benefits for children and young adults, not only in terms of educational development but also in regard to enhanced physical well-being, the promotion of personal skills and attributes, as well as wider social awareness.
