Welcome to Primary Music for Schools

Covid-19 Message

Edsential musicians will be recommencing their usual school timetable in September. While we have been in ‘lockdown’, we have developed new ways of teaching remotely and we have lots of exciting musical resources to share. In September we will be able to join you in person or remotely through live video conferencing whichever is necessary.

We help children and young people to become musicians who listen, co-operate, concentrate, co-ordinate, develop manual dexterity, memory, self-control, imagination, and confidence.

Learning to play an instrument is a journey of discovery, joy, challenge, and fulfilment. The instrumental learning journey often starts in Key Stage 1 with the recorder or classroom percussion instruments. Every child has the opportunity to experience learning to play an instrument in Key Stage 2 as their manual dexterity, strength and co-ordination develop sufficiently to handle instruments such as the violin, trumpet or saxophone. With a wide range of instruments, musical styles, concerts and events; an exciting musical journey awaits!



Have you ever dreamed of playing any of the following instruments?







Double Bass

Acoustic, Electric and Bass Guitar


Trumpet & Cornet

Euphonium & Baritone











We can provide an instrument from our extensive range of stock for you to hire for an agreed period. When you have decided which instrument suits you best, you may continue to hire or, alternatively, make a purchase.

Young people grow into skilled musicians who listen and co-operate with each other with confidence and creativity. Instrument tuition is provided by our team of qualified instrumentalists within schools and from our music centres in Chester, Ellesmere Port, Hartford, Winsford, Weaverham and Woodchurch.

Group lessons in schools are available for beginners, and as students’ progress and become more experienced they may prefer usually prefer to have an individual 20 or 30-minute lesson.  There are also plenty of opportunities for students to join groups as they progress

Learning to play an instrument is a lifelong skill which can benefit young people socially and academically.

Musical instruments can be hired or purchased directly from Edsential. Please contact more details
