Our Music Centre

Harpenden Musicale offers music-making opportunities for children and adults. We are a community music leisure centre, attracting members from Harpenden and a very large area beyond.
Children can start from the age of four by jumping on to one of our roundabouts and we encourage children to start playing any band or orchestral instrument from the age of 7. Adults are also very welcome to renew their playing skills or start from scratch.

Our Trainers

All the Musicale Trainers are experienced musicians and all are all DBS checked.

There are a number of trainers for each instrument which gives the intending player a number of options for session times during the week.

All the trainers share Musicale’s philosophy, namely that music making should be fun while at the same time striving to fulfil each individual’s full potential.

What our clients say

Musicale has made music accessible and relevant to our children, but most importantly of all it has provided an environment where it is fun to learn and make music!- Rebecca Mitchell
I just wanted to let you know that Ruth had a fantastic time on the Young Artists course and loved attending all the concerts too. Thank you for organising for her to attend and for “firing her up” to play music during this coming year.- Clare Harding
Thank you for such a wonderful week at Musicale- I really enjoyed every aspect of the course, and everyone was so friendly and welcoming despite the fact that I was “new” and hadn't been coming for half of my life.- Izzy Cocker
Just wanted to get in touch to say Molly had an absolute ball at the summer course in July. She is really fired up and practising like mad. It is extremely worrying! I thought we had got away without any of our children showing any urges to go into the music world, but it seems we might have misjudged Molly.- Tony Robb
My daughters really love Musicale in Cambridge. It is an action packed week, serious music making, serious FUN as well as making new friends. I am amazed at the parent concert at the end of the week how many orchestral pieces the children have learnt as well as the songs and percussion pieces. The team that lead the week are fantastic, extremely talented and good fun. My older daughter (age 15) is off to Harpenden this year but my ten-year-old daughter is staying in Cambridge and taking a friend with her - they can't wait.- Sophie Stafford
Our son has been attending Musicale courses since he was 9 years old. He began at Guildford and as his playing progressed he joined the Harpenden family of boarders. The professional inspirational staff manage to teach to a high standard whilst keeping a sense of fun throughout. Friendships forged over the years between the students remain supportive and true.I would recommend these courses to any parent of a musical child.Our son turns 18 this year so it is his last as a student. He hopes to return as a helper in the future Well done Gill and Caroline for creating a wonderful institution.- Michele Lines-Davies
