We are pleased to announce that the majority of our classes are currently running, mostly on an online basis (Zoom). This is with a view to moving to face-to-face sessions as soon as circumstances allow plus we and our teachers feel that it is safe to do so in line with Government guidance.

Over the summer we ran a range of projects for members whilst we were unable to meet in person. For example, see our AMC in lockdown Music Video.
Abingdon Music Centre was established 45 years ago to give the people of Abingdon opportunities to make music, whatever their age or experience. We run a range of music groups for babies and preschoolers, school-age children and adults as well as outreach work in the town. We also host activities on behalf of other groups and 1:1 music lessons. We are a small but growing charity and we are always interested to gather views and ideas from people who would like to make music.
|I started at AMC with baby music when I was 6 months old, and have been supported by the centre ever since. Having benefitted from lessons in recorder, drums and now guitar, I have had the opportunity to learn from the experiences of many fantastic, dedicated teachers. There really is something for everyone, and I would highly recommend AMC to anyone wanting to develop their confidence in music, no matter what stage!|
|Both my children have been taking music lessons at Abingdon Music Centre for the past 3 years. My daughter (7 years) does Recorder & Musicianship and my son (10 years) is in Guitar Club. They also attend the half term music workshops which they thoroughly enjoy. The highlight for my children is the summer and Christmas performances in which they get to play for an audience. The music centre offers affordable music lessons for a wide age range.|
|Since joining ACCord, I have made friends, connected with people from all walks of life within the community, and most of all had fun. I hadn’t sung with people since I was at school, and ACCord has been so welcoming that my confidence has grown so much. Singing every week with this wonderful group of people has really helped make Abingdon feel like home.|
|We have been bringing our daughter to groups at AMC since she was 6 months old. Nearly five years later we are still coming! The class leaders have all been so lovely and are talented teachers as well as musicans. It’s been a joy to meet new friends and see our children’s confidence and love of music blossom.|
