KMS began life in 1986 as the Kingston Music Service in order to safeguard and enhance music education within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. There has been a steady increase in the number and scope of the activities since that time. Today the KMS provides instrumental and vocal music tuition for more than fifteen hundred young people in schools and music centres and manages the recording studio at the Hook Centre.
In addition, KMS initiates and manages arts projects in schools (involving music, dance, drama and visual art) through after school art clubs and through music, drama and dance festivals.
KMS is a non-profit making organisation which receives funding from the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the Department for Education. It is also a member of the Federation of Music Services.
