Ceredigion Music Services

In Ceredigion our lives are enriched by music. Taking part in music and other cultural activities can have a significant impact on young people’s development. As well as being valuable and enjoyable in its own right, participation in musical ensembles gives young people the opportunity to develop important life skills such as self discipline, confidence, effective communication and the ability to work within a team.

Ceredigion Music Service provides the opportunity for young musicians to participate in:

  • Weekly ensembles
  • Choirs
  • Performance
  • Achieving musical qualifications
  • Residential courses

Ceredigion Music Service aims to help Ceredigion children and young people to find their talent.
