Stay Connected with our Online Music Groups…

Since September, our Music Centre and County Ensembles have moved online and, while we can’t wait for the day when we can play live together again, we are keeping things going with regular Zoom rehearsals.

With the latest lockdown it’s an ideal time to join. It’s more challenging than ever to keep connected and our groups can support your child to relax and feel less isolated through playing music and meeting with other young musicians.

There are a wide range of opportunities for all levels of experience, including for beginners. We have an extremely talented and friendly team of tutors who lead activities, offer guidance and provide a range of music and resources which you can use at home.

We have put together a comprehensive list below of all the groups.

Music Centres meet weekly and are suitable for all levels of experience. They are a great progression pathway to County Ensembles.
