Music for Bedford Borough

Bedford Music        

Mission Statement

Children and young people’s lives are uplifted through exciting, engaging and challenging opportunities both in and out of school that make sense of music from their own and other generations, genres and cultures. They understand that their music and artistic participation has a number of access-points and progression routes from infant to adult through a broad-range of high quality teaching, ensemble and other opportunities. As a result, knowledgeable, confident and musically skilled individuals enjoy enriched lives; contribute to vibrant communities and some, to our nation’s creative industries.

Our aim to continually provide and develop the best possible musical opportunities for all young people in our area is driven by the principles outlined in our six strategic strands:


Important changes to vocal & instrumental lessons and instrument hire

Instrumental and vocal tuition in individual and small group lessons are now provided by the Bedford Music Co-operative: www.bedfordmusiccoop.co.uk.

 

Instrument Hire is available through Music for Bedford Borough at £10 per instrument per term.  Please download the hire application form here, and email to music@bedford.gov.uk.


 

Sing On Concerts

The Sing On Concerts took place on 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, and 28 June 2016 at the Corn Exchange, Bedford. Lower and Primary schools in Bedford Borough joined together to take part in a series of massed singing concerts! The events gave young children the chance to sing in a large choir with hundreds of other children of the same age. The range of music was eclectic, including music from popular films, pop songs from the charts, hymnal songs, songs with singing and acting solos, and many exciting dance moves throughout. There was also a guest performance from the Bedford Children's Choir. The will continue to be fantastic vocal opportunities provided by Music for Bedford Borough in the years to come!

 

'Wider Opps' Play Day

4 July 2016

Over 600 year 4 pupils showed off the skills they acquired in just 15 weeks of learning instruments in the 'Wider Opps' programme! With the excitement of joining with fellow performers from other schools and with support from Music for Bedford Borough teachers - these beginner instrumentalists were an encouragement to us all in demonstrating the value and enjoyment of music education.
