Brookfield Music Centre (BMC)

Brookfield is a Music Centre that will inspire and become life-changing for many of our students.  It has the power to unlock creativity, to challenge and bring out the very best in our students.  Staff will encourage and support every BMC member through their journey of music achievement.

We are happy for parents to bring their child/children along for two free trial sessions before joining.  There is no need to make an appointment, just turn up and enquire at the registration desk.  Parents are welcome to stay and observe, and all new students are assigned a senior member student to help them.  Please check first that the Centre is open by checking the GM calendar.

Saturdays from 9.20am - 12.30pm

Rehearsals are during term time only.  Please check the full rehearsal schedule on the GM calendar.
