Experience the thrill of making music with other young people

Looking for a place where you can make music with others, improve your musical skills, make friends for life, take part in concerts and other exciting musical experiences? Perhaps an inclusive orchestra?

Our music centres are the place to be! Somewhere near you, there is a school where we meet to make music in bands, orchestras and choirs! There’s something for everyone learning to play an instrument!

Make friends, have fun!

Can I accompany my child to his/her session?

This isn’t possible during current covid regulations, but usually parents are welcome to attend their child’s first session.

Can my child attend orchestra even though she’s given up lessons?

Ensemble sessions are music-based, rather than technique-based so it is important that all MC members are having lessons separately on the instrument they play in the Music Centre.

When will the next concert be?

Hopefully during the last session of term in July – tbc.

Can I play in my child’s ensemble?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate adults in Music Centre ensembles.

Have you reached grade 6 on your instrument? Or are you a strong singer capable of passing an audition? Then you may be ready for our county ensembles.
