The Benefits of Music
Music is what we are all about! Our ambition is to provide opportunities for as many children as possible in Berkshire to access music education. Whether this is through individual lessons, small groups or larger bands and orchestras, we celebrate and offer music learning in all its forms.
Playing an instrument, singing or making music is uplifting and fun!
Improves our Wellbeing
Music is food for the soul and singing or playing an instrument develops confidence, emotional intelligence and the ability to connect to the world around them
Socialise with others
Our music centres and community classes provide safe social spaces, and music groups provide strong friendship groups outside of school whether that be in groups, choirs, ensembles, events and tours!
Singing or playing an instrument develops many skills including memory and concentration
Every genreChoose your instrument
Berkshire Music Trust doesn’t just focus on classical music and orchestras – we offer lessons on many instruments and across the musical spectrum. Whether you want to join a rock group, a swing band, a chamber group, or an orchestra, we will have something to suit you. And if you aren’t sure which is right for you yet, we can help you choose your instrument
Every ageRead more
Music can be appreciated at all ages! From Mini Maestros classes for baby and toddlers, to community groups for older adults, we offer musical opportunities for everyone. Our lessons are open to both children and adults, and we even offer smaller sized instruments for those who are still growing. You are never too young to start your musical journey
Our ultimate aim is for everyone to be able to access our music education. Our lessons can be tailored for people with additional needs, and our Music Therapy is a fantastic option for those who need this extra support. We appreciate that everyone has different circumstances and different challenges, however we will always aim to overcome any obstacles that families may face
