Creative Learning


Wiltshire Music Centre was founded on a commitment to nurture musical ability and interest, regardless of age or background.

Our Creative Learning Programme is at the heart of everything we do and provides local schools, families and communities with access to high quality music-making and participatory experiences.

We are pleased that Wiltshire Music Centre is now an official Arts Award Supporter, offering support at all levels of award, from Discover and Explore, through to Gold level. We are committed to encouraging young people to undertake their Arts Award using our wide variety of concerts and events to support their learning.  Students working towards their Arts Award will also be eligible for discounts on tickets, and involvement in Creative Learning projects.

In 2014/15 we:

  • Welcomed over 35,000 people to take part in activities
  • Delivered workshops with over 2,000 children in primary schools
  • Launched a new Young Curators group to create their own events at the Centre
  • Hosted a major education and performance residency with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment working with over 270 young people
  • Ran Zone Club; our monthly music and dance sessions for learning disabled young adults
  • Took over the running of the Wiltshire and Swindon Youth Orchestra (now West of England Youth Orchestra) and Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra
  • Supported talented young musicians through our Young Artist Programme

We take inspiration from our main Artistic Programme to develop learning opportunities and nurture emerging talent.
