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.

IMPORTANT UPDATES - It will not be possible for EMC to open normally for the Autumn Term 2020 due to the deteriorating covid situation. We will continue to provide on-line tuition to those students who have booked these lessons until further notice. If you did not sign-up for on-line tuition but wish to do so now, please contact us via our Contact link.

Please visit our Vacancies page here:  vacancies   We do have some immediate vacancies.

Complete an on-line Application now. It is important that you only complete one application for each student. If you have any future queries please send us a message not another application form. Duplicate forms will delay an offer of tuition.
