- About us
|Welcome to Soar Valley Music Centre. We are a charity which aims to bring training in music and media to everyone and anyone. We work mainly, but not exclusively, with young people.
Over the years Soar Valley Music Centre has trained thousands of young people from all backgrounds and given them a route into the industry.
The charity now offers projects and courses for all kinds of people from those coming from a youth offending background, to young people at risk, young people with barriers to learning, those who don’t go to school or are at risk of exclusion, as well as talented young musicians seeking dynamic and specialised support.
This is achieved through the wide range of provision available at Soar Valley Music Centre ...
A big thank you to all those who took part in our Table Top Sale and Craft Day. It was a lovely day which had obviously enticed people to get on with their DIY and catch up with their gardening but we still had a good number of visitors come along to visit the many interesting a varied stalls on offer.
The spring term was a short term this year and consequently our exam entry was small however, as the saying goes, all the best things come in small packages. We had 28 candidates for practical exams and 5 for theory exams with the following results:
Distinction - 3
Merit - 14
Pass - 11
Distinction - 1
Merit - 3
Pass - 1
Well done everyone.
On Saturday 13th April the doors of SVMC were thrown wide to anyone who wanted to come along and find out more about what the Music Centre offers. Particularly aimed at young people who were coming to the end of their school years and looking to move onto further education, but open to everyone, there were workshops around the building for DJ and MCing, recording, ensemble work and musical theatre with an emphasis on the work we do with BTEC level two and level 3 students.
A group of 16 students and tutors have just returned from a very successful visit to our friends at the Scuola di musica G. Verdi in Prato, Italy. This high profile music school has been linked with Soar Valley Music Centre for many years and we have enjoyed many exchanges between the two countries. The students had the chance to have lessons with some of the best music teachers in Italy and they ended the week with a joint concert between our players and those of the music school.
Come and support some great local crafters at Soar Valley Music Centre.
