About Soar Valley Music Centre

Soar Valley Music Centre promotes the enjoyment and understanding of music for learners from all backgrounds. The daytime programmes were originally written to support the musical development of students who played in the Youth Orchestra.

Our courses are developed to encourage all musicians and offer opportunities they might otherwise have been denied. We aim to help learners develop their own musical identities and ideas at all levels from initial to Higher Education.

Alongside music lessons, we offer support with music theory, ensemble work, conducting and much more.  Rock musician or Classical violinist, you will find the support and guidance you need whatever the level.


Soar Valley Music Centre currently offers much more than simply music lessons. We have two thriving orchestras, for different age ranges and levels. In recent years our senior orchestra has visited Slovenia, Austria, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, St. Lucia.

In addition to our courses and instrumental teaching we also offer specialist weekends and workshops for learners and instrumentalists of all ages.

Last year aside from the individual instrumentalists who have lessons with us we enrolled over fifty students and of those 90%  achieved credits at either Level 1, 2 or 3.

Our Alternative Provision students have a record of achieving 100% success and have all progressed onto either further training or employment.

If you would like to know more about any of the opportunities we offer, please contact Liz Dunn.
