About Us

THE MUSIC POOL is the community music charity for Herefordshire and its borders.  We were founded in 1988, as Hereford Arts in Action Ltd., and took on the operating name THE MUSIC POOL in 1998.


We operate and enable a variety of music activities, some also involving related arts, such as drama, dance and writing.  Our work takes place in many different settings.



The Music Pool is the principal partner in the Herefordshire Music Education Hub, which is led by Herefordshire Music Service.



In 2010, The Music Pool received The Elgar In Hereford Music Award, in recognition for its contribution to the musical life of the county.
