Wirksworth Music Centre

Wirksworth Music Centre is a social and educational organisation for children, aged 5 to 18.  It is staffed by professionally qualified musicians and teachers.  It is supported and monitored by Derbyshire County Council.  It provides opportunities for the students to play music together in groups suited to their abilities.  Its members range from beginners to very skilled players of string and wind instruments.

Wirksworth Music Centre has been supporting and teaching young musicians for more than 15 years. The staff and students meet for group music-making on Saturday mornings at Anthony Gell School.

Anyone of school age who is learning an instrument is welcome to join us. We give them the opportunity to perform in groups for parents and the wider community.

We also have beginner groups: a music and movement class for the younger children who are not yet learning an instrument; and a class which introduces children gently to the recorder and the violin.
