Henley Music School offers all-inclusive, fun music education in all forms to any child regardless of age, ability, means or background.

Henley Music School is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, previously  founded as a community interest company in 2010, and began by benefiting the community on a smaller scale. HMS now provides all forms of music education to anyone in Henley-on-Thames and surrounding areas.

  • Individual music lessons in any instrument, with free loan of instrument for a period of time, until they can either afford it, or have no need of it.

  • We offer subsidies for children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford lessons or clubs, offering up to 100% bursaries on fees.

  • We provide specialist piano lessons for autistic children in Bishopswood and Badgemore Schools.

  • We provide curriculum lessons to Trinity School, Sacred Heart & Badgemore schools.  These are tailored to fit budget, and in some cases are free to the school.

  • Henley Youthful Orchestra is a musical group made up of rusty older musicians who just want to play music, escape  & have fun. Rehearse once a month, pay a subscription.
