Why attend a music centre

Music Centres offer opportunities to develop musical skills and talents in a collaborative environment.

We encourage social networking in a safe place and provide regular performance opportunities throughout the year. Making music with other people in a group or band or orchestra is fun, a good social experience and often the start of a lifelong interest.

It was an excellent experience and opportunity for the children, as always. Many of them had not been to the Bridgewater Hall before. A big thank you from staff and children at St Andrew’s. It was a fantastic morning.
