The Concerto Programme

Furness Music Centre now includes the Concerto Programme -  a scheme to enable all children in the Furness area to be able to learn an orchestral instrument or sing in a choir.  Free places on the Concerto Programme can be offered to children who qualify for free school meals, and we can also offer subsidised places depending on your circumstances.

The Concerto Programme includes:

  • The loan or hire of an instrument - currently we can offer violin, cello, flute or clarinet
  • Lessons in your chosen instrument every Saturday in term time
  • One or more sessions at Furness Music Centre, playing with other children and adults
  • Membership of Furness Music Centre Community Choir
  • Help with travel costs if needed

If you would like to apply for a place on the Concerto Programme, download our leaflet Information for Parents and Children and return it to us.  The full cost for those families who can afford to pay is about £43.50 per month (payable by standing order) depending on your choice of instrument.  Once we have your application, someone will contact you to discuss the programme and help you choose an instrument.

If you work at a local school or are a school governor, please download our leaflet Information for Schools and return it to us.  The more organisations and individuals that we can demonstrate support the programme, the easier it will be to raise the funds to make it happen!

If you feel able to support the Concerto proposal either as a business or personally, you can become a Sponsor or a Patron download our leaflets Information for Potential Sponsors and Information for Potential Patrons.  All donations will be very welcome, and as a charity run by unpaid trustees, we can guarantee that every penny you donate will be used to help local children
