In existence for over 25 years, Excel prides itself on offering a value for money service to any educational establishment and helping to cut out the restrictions placed by the local authorities. The company has received many glowing reports from OFSTED & HMI. Because Excel specialises in working with children with moderate to severe SEN (Special Educational Needs) it will allow all children to take part in music and the performing arts based courses.
Instrumental tuition on brass, woodwind & strings has always been very popular in schools. However, at this time there was no provision for allowing students to have lessons on both piano & electronic keyboard and so EMS seized on this opportunity and started providing electronic keyboard lessons in a number of local schools. The aim was to provide a service to students of all ages regardless of their own individual status. It was at this time that our logo “The Quest For Musical Excellence” was created. Word soon spread and the number increased significantly over the next 2 to 3 years. The school regards music tuition as being a gift that can last a life time and has taught many thousands of pupils during its existence..
EMS now employs 12 staff and its Managing Director, Stephen Mansfield, has considerable experience in Music & Performing Arts having worked on Stage, TV & Radio. Originally training as an organist & teacher he has enlisted the help of several individuals & organizations that have contributed to the school’s success.
The school continues to grow year on year and it is our aim to extend beyond the Midlands over the coming years.
