A lively and friendly centre for children aged 3-18, the North music centre offers a wide range of musical opportunities covering lots of styles for all ages. We have samba, folk (ceilidh), rock & pop bands as well as wind, brass and string groups.  This year we are starting brand new vocal groups and song writing sessions.

For children under 8 we have Polkadots music making sessions and ukulele groups.

For advanced players, the North Music Centre also offers the opportunity to join Blackley Centre Stage Band (BCSB) and Manchester Youth Wind Orchestra (MYWO).

Membership to our music centres is FREE! Come along and play, everyone is welcome!
