Blackpool Music Service provides weekly musical tuition in all Blackpool Schools and Academies and, in 90% of our Children's Centres. It's constant drive to improve the experiences and opportunities of all Blackpool children makes the Music Centre a fun place to work and rehearse and staged events have shown that Blackpool children have exceptional talent. The children have the opportunity to perform on big stages every year such as the Grand Theatre, Winter Gardens Opera House, Blackpool Tower ballroom and these events are so exciting, filling our children with hopes and dreams to become professional musicians - or just to learn an instrument for fun and enjoyment! We provide free instrument loans to all Blackpool Children, free membership to all ensembles (instrumental and vocal) and ongoing support/advice when the children leave school. Twenty six of our children have been invited to join national orchestras with one flautist recently invited to play for the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Providing instruments doesn't come cheap as a cornet can cost between £200 and £1,400. With your donations we will be able to continue to encourage and support all Blackpool children to realise their musical aspirations. We also aim to provide bursaries for ABRSM music exams where the family is on a low income.
