We run a number of instrumental starter clubs throughout our area and have our main centre based in Ilkeston.

Our focus is on giving young people of all ages and backgrounds a real sense of belonging and a fun place to be each week during school term time. We have a full range of musical ensembles ranging through strings, woodwind, brass and percussion to suit all  levels and standards of playing.

We have a number of different standards of ensemble, which allow our students to progress consistently between the time they arrive (typically aged 10-11) until they leave, usually when they reach 18, to go to university or into the world of work.

It gives us real satisfaction to know that many of our students stay to spend 5 or 6 years with us; so much so, that many of them take up music at a higher level or as a professional career when they leave.

We even have a tuck shop selling drinks and snacks - not only for our youngsters, but for parents needing somewhere to hang out whilst they're here.

We are passionate about involving our students in new experiences and are proud to be able to take them on a bi-annual European tour; including recent destinations of Belgium, Germany, France (including a performance at Disneyland Paris!) and Holland.  We also encourage engagement with the local community and our ensembles are regularly asked to perform throughout Erewash and Amber Valley areas.

Our main centre is based at Kirk Hallam Community Academy and we open our doors on Saturdays between 9am and 1pm.
