Dorset Rural Music School

Keeping Dorset in tune since 1947


Library & Shop  

Updated 22 September 2016

We have a huge library of music of all types, both single items and also orchestral, choral and chamber music sets.

We also have a large (and ever-growing) library of books on music, and classical CDs.

All these items are available for hire at very reasonable rates.

Browsers of any of this material are very welcome but please ring 01258 452 511 before you come to establish a mutually convenient time for your visit.

Choosing a book

Copies of the Library Catalogue are available to download under the following headings:

Manuscript and baton

Further lists for school/amateur orchestra and chamber music will be forthcoming.    
We are always delighted to receive donations of unwanted music, especially choral, orchestral and chamber music.
If you have, or know of music of this type, needing a good home, do let us (or potential donors) know.


Although we no longer have a room devoted largely to retail activity, we still sell sheet music, strings, reeds and other musical equipment.

We carry a good range of basic teaching and ABRSM exam material and our links with music publishers and warehouses are as strong as ever.  If you provide us with full details of what you are looking for, then we can obtain it for you quickly and efficiently.
