Welcome to Gravesham Music Centre!

Gravesham Music Centre (GMC) is an inspiring local music hub based in the heart of the community and designed with musicians in mind.

We offer a range of lessons and ensembles for musicians of all ages, backgrounds and interests.

It’s the best place to connect with the local music community, providing access to fantastic music education outside of school hours and regardless of the availability of lessons and groups in schools.

We look forward to welcoming you to the centre!

If you join the Centre as a new member in the first half of Autumn, Spring or Summer term, you can enjoy completely free sessions until that half term break. Find out more in our Terms & Conditions.

We have immediate availability for new flute, oboe, recorder, bassoon, clarinet and saxophone students.

Joining a local music ensemble like an orchestra, choir or band can enhance this playing, giving you the opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn new skills, and become a confident player.

Ensembles are always enjoyable, and often there is the opportunity to join in with performances and showcase your talents.
