Bracknell Music Centre

Berkshire Maestros' Bracknell Music Centre runs music lessons, choirs and instrumental ensembles for children and young adults in the Bracknell area. The centre has recently moved to larger, dedicated premises at Ranelagh School, where it will benefit from excellent teaching and rehearsal facilities as well as a refreshment area and ample car parking. The partnership with Ranelagh very much supports our core values and will help us to meet some of our future objectives for children and young people in the Bracknell area.

The Music centre is a buzzing environment, providing young people with a safe and friendly environment to learn and make new friends.

Lessons

At Bracknell Music Centre we provide lessons after school and at the weekends in a wide range of instruments and styles to suit all (subject to the availability of our teachers). We have a large number of teaching rooms of varying sizes to run the lessons in and parents can wait in our reception area if necessary.

Lessons are fun and interactive and provide children with the skills and knowledge to become excellent musicians. Sessions are tailored to individual needs and can build up to music examinations or simply focus on the enjoyment of playing. It might also be possible to hire an instrument from us if you are interested in lessons but don't own an instrument (subject to availability and our usual terms and conditions of instrument hire).

Find out more about the range of lessons we offer.

Ensembles

As well as lessons, Bracknell Music Centre provides an opportunity for young musicians to join a wide variety of musical ensembles. These range from Early Years classes with Mini Maestros, through beginner bands to the most advanced ensembles in each area. Opportunities are available for string ensembles, wind ensembles, brass bands, percussion ensembles, choirs and guitar bands, and also contemporary workshops/sessions for rock musicians. Classes in music theory are available to those wanting to improve their academic music knowledge.

Ensembles provide a perfect opportunity for young musicians to enjoy playing as part of a team, improving and enhancing many areas of their learning. Their knowledge of repertoire will be extended and they will learn more about techniques and musicality.

Ensembles also enable young musicians to come together to share a joint passion and create new lasting friendships.
