Music Centres in Central Bedfordshire reopen


After a year of pandemic disruption, Inspiring Music will be reopening its three music centres for face-to-face music making, playing and performing.

Inspiring Music is Central Bedfordshire’s music service, it offers music lessons in schools, music centres and support for schools and teachers.

From Saturday 25 September 2021, the three music centres in Ampthill, Biggleswade, and Leighton-Linslade will open their doors to welcome students – both new and old – with new timetables and activities catering for all ages and instruments, including early years and beginners

There’s a huge range of musical instruments and activities on offer during each session, including guitars, jazz bands, musical theory, singing, ukuleles and much more.

These sessions aim to provide children, their families and members of the community from all backgrounds, with the opportunity to play and make music.

The Saturday morning sessions take place between 9.30am and 12.30pm during term time and are open to everyone. Inspiring Music staff will be on hand to offer advice and answer questions.

Ben Bottone, area manager, Inspiring Music, said:

“The whole team at Inspiring Music are thrilled to be reopening our music centres.

“This past year it has been incredible to see our students embracing online sessions during the pandemic, but we are very pleased to be reopening the doors for in-person learning and playing.

“Learning to make and play music with others in the group allows students to learn from experienced tutors face-to-face and share the experience with like-minded souls as part of a live ensemble. It can really help people to embrace a new instrument or discover new ways of playing whilst having fun.”

Inspiring Music offer a 25% discount on first term membership for anyone aged between 5 and 18. Music sessions are also available for adults.
