No other musical company matches HMDT Music for quality, outstanding outcomes, profound musical and cross-curricular learning and long-term legacy. HMDT helped me turn around staff and parental expectations of the standard that could be achieved at the highest level across the whole school, leading to our first Outstanding Ofsted Report.
