Earley Music Centre

Saturday morning music school

We offer a wide range of       individual instrumental lessons, plus theory and aural studies.


All instrumental lessons are on an INDIVIDUAL basis. Our pupils range from 5 to 80+ years of age. Join us and take part in our Bands and Ensembles. We also have a Big Band which meets monthly.

Established in 1960, we provide musical tuition to around 200 students on Saturday mornings at Earley St Peter's School, Church Road, Earley, Reading RG6 1EY.

We have a small number of immediate  vacancies   as well as vacancies for next term.  Please contact us for details.
