We are delighted to be able to partially reopen Colwell Arts Centre from the 26th April 2021 on a strict appointment-only basis. To collect, return or exchange an instrument, please contact us at glosmusic@gloucestershire.gov.uk to make an appointment.

Whilst we await the further lifting of Government restrictions due to Covid-19 why not check out our Resources and Links page for educational, fun and inspiring links to enable you to keep your music making going!

Welcome to our Gloucestershire Music family!

This page is where we want you to be able to see, hear and find out more about all of our team and our tutors.  What instruments do they play?  What are their roles at Gloucestershire Music?  Some even reveal some facts that might surprise you!  We hope it might help those who are thinking about joining a group feel more at ease if they can learn a little more about the tutors who will be leading and supporting them.
