Update 23/9/20: The Music Centres were due to open for the new term on Saturday, 26th September. However, due to the current situation nationally, the decision has now been made to delay the opening of all music centres until Saturday 7th November at the earliest.
If you would like to enrol for a Music Centre activity, you can still use our online form to register in advance. Your details will be held until we have a clear picture of what the situation will be as regards opening in November.
Please note that completing the form does in itself not commit you to payment, and it does not guarantee a place – once we receive your form, we will contact you to confirm your activities and arrange payment.
It is important to us that the Music Centres are able to open as safely as possible. We will therefore be introducing social distancing and other safety measures at all of the centres. Please click here to read our guidance on staying safe at Music Centres.
Want to learn to play an instrument or sing? Already play, but want to improve? Get expert tuition and friendly support at Leeds Music Centres. The Music Centres run on Saturday mornings at venues all over Leeds. All ages are welcome, from under 5s to over 60s. We have something for everyone, from fun beginner groups to advanced ensembles, covering all styles and levels of experience.
We believe Music Centre fees are very reasonable, but further concessions are available to families on qualifying benefits including Income Support, Jobseeker’s Allowance, Child Tax Credit and others. You may be eligible for a discount of up to 66%, to a maximum of £100 per student. For more information, please contact the Music Centre you want to join, or call the ArtForms office on 0113 378 2850.
Want to try out a new instrument? We can provide a year’s free-of-charge instrument hire for beginners (subject to availability). After the first year, a small charge applies. If you want to buy an instrument, Take It Away is an interest free loan scheme run by the Arts Council, which allows people to borrow up to £2000 towards the cost of any instrument. Awards for Young Musicians offer grants to young musicians.
