Warwickshire County Council has voted for £10m of cuts across services such as music teaching and social care.
At the annual budget meeting, councillors also raised council tax by 2.4%, meaning about £27 a year extra on an average band D property.
Councillors are considering merging its music service with Coventry and Solihull to try to reduce costs.
The County Music Service employs 170 music teachers working with 249 schools throughout Warwickshire.
There was no verdict on the potential closure of seven fire stations, with no date for when that decision will be made.
