Saturday Morning Music Centres
Saturday Morning Music Centres are held in five locations in the Youth Music area each Saturday during school term-times. These are in Ampthill, Bedford, Biggleswade, Dunstable, and Leighton Buzzard. Saturday Morning Music Centres are also held in Luton and Milton Keynes. They offer a wide range of musical activities to enhance the school curriculum.
Each music centre has its own timetable, but most include: orchestras, bands, chamber music, instrumental and recorder ensembles, choirs, jazz groups, aural training and theory classes. They cater for students of all ages and abilities from aged 5-18, and also those who have left school can participate, providing they do not prevent a school pupil from taking part.
All music students benefit greatly from a period of study at one of these centres, in whatever areas they choose to participate.
Benefits of joining a Music Centre include;
- Improving your performing and sight-reading
- Meeting new people
- Seeing and hearing other groups perform
- Performing in concerts each term
If you are interested in any of these Music Centres then please discuss it with your music teacher or contact the relevant County Music Service;
