Parents: Find Music Centres and Groups


Having lessons is one thing, but the skills a young musician gains from making music in a group are an important part of their development  as musicians, and as people. And they’ll have great fun too!

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 for beginners alongside opportunities for more advanced students.

Our County Ensembles offer the opportunity for intermediate and advanced instrumentalists and singers can take their skills to the next level, working with professional music directors and tutors.

More Music, based at The Hothouse in Morecambe, runs a wide range of creative music sessions for all ages, including early years musicmaking, rock schools, hip-hop/DJing, jazz, singing and much more.  Visit More Music for more info or click on the individual links below.
