Christchurch Music Centre is a volunteer led organisation that has, for more than three decades, supported the musical ambitions of many young people in the local area.


The aims of the group are to:

  • Inspire and encourage the talents of young people to make music

  • Offer opportunities to perform to the public at a variety of venues

  • Provide an enjoyable and friendly learning environment to enable musicians to develop their talents

  • Support musicians of all ages and abilities

  • Play a variety of musical genres including classical, jazz, pop and film scores

  • To have Fun!


At present we run:


Both bands are frequently asked to perform at events across East Dorset, providing musical entertainment for the switching on of Christmas lights, supporting various charity events, and entertaining crowds on summer afternoons by Christchurch and Bournemouth bandstands.


Christchurch Music Centre is an independent group supported by Soundstorm and Hampshire Music Education Hub as well as raising our own funds.

We are committee run by a team of volunteers who work very hard to help make the group the success that it is.
