We have a large number of fully qualified and multi-talented staff members to teach a wide range of musical instruments to the pupils of Bury.

Many of our teaching staff also conduct a number of groups, choirs and orchestras, which are available for our pupils to join at Bury Music Centre.

We also teach music theory and curriculum, as well as vocal training.
