Music Tuition at Music Centres

Music lessons are held at Music Centre West in Southmead from Monday – Thursday, 3.30pm – 7pm during term time. We offer lessons on every instrument imaginable including piano, strings, brass, woodwind and voice. We advise children to be at least 7 years old before commencing lessons at our music centre.

If your child is interested in having music lessons at our centre, please follow the link below to enrol them. This will add their name to a waiting list and we will be in touch if there is a space available for them. Please note, we only allocate lessons before the beginning of each double term (i.e. to start in September, January and after Easter).


All music tuition registrations are managed through our registration portal SpeedAdmin.

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
