Music Centres

There  are currently four area-based centres throughout the county: Ampthill, Biggleswade, Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard, with activities focused on Saturday mornings.

There are a huge range of musical activities on offer from guitars and keyboards to orchestra, bands, choirs, recorders, rock groups, pre-school activities and much more.

The centres provide for students of all ages and standards, from beginner upwards, with a wide range of opportunities to develop musicianship and playing skills. For most people, music has its greatest impact when played with others

Concert performances are the goal of most of our ensembles and are valuable experiences in their own right. We try to ensure that every ensemble in a Music Centre has regular performance opportunities.
