Book Your Child's Half-Term Music Activity

FULLY FUNDED – FREE TO ENROL
(subject to availability)

Join us in May, October or February at our brand new Music Camps. Aimed at children 5-10 years of age, we have two wonderful opportunities for youngsters to get involved in music and connect with others in a peer to peer learning dynamic.

These half-term camps are funded by Tom’s Trust and have been created to allow under-privileged children and families to take part in an interactive music-making experience. 

The Midi Music Company is an innovative music education and talent development charity, founded in 1995. We champion excellence through our educational programmes and are dedicated to nurturing the musical talent of vulnerable and disadvantaged young people aged 11-30, empowering them with the skills and confidence to seek careers in music and other creative industries.
