Inspiring and empowering students to learn about a full range of instruments is another benefit of attending a music centre.
Music Centre students have the opportunity to visit different teachers to find out more about choosing an instrument to learn. At Chorlton Music Centre, Zoe Burke, is our double bass specialist and runs a successful lower strings ensemble in addition to teaching individuals.
Although people often think a double bass is too large for primary aged students, there are many different sizes available such as the one Dominic is learning on in the photo [above].
The possibilities are endless
Chorlton Centre offers a wide range of tuition for individuals and groups on string, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar / ukulele and keyboard instruments.
This is supported with accessible ensembles for all levels of players and music theory, aural, dalcroze and early years music activities.
Karen Cottam is our double reed specialist at Blackley Music Centre and can be seen teaching young bassoon and oboe players.
Learning alongside others
