Lytham Music Centre

Lancashire Music Service runs a network of music centres throughout the County where young musicians of all levels of experience can play together in bands and ensembles and sing in choirs, offering an ideal progression route from Whole Class Ensemble Tuition alongside opportunities for more advanced students.

Our Music Centres have been online during the COVID pandemic and we are planning to relaunch them in September 2021.
