"Welcome to The Mix - Luton's music education hub"

Schools and music organisations working with Luton Music Service to provide the best possible music-making opportunities for young people in Luton.


The Luton Music Service office is now open to staff, but The Leagrave Centre is not yet open to the public. If you need to return an instrument, please call our office number 01582 538232/538224 or email lutonmusicservice@luton.gov.uk to make an appointment.

During the lockdown period, we have been delivering our instrumental/vocal tuition service online via Google classroom. We are now back at school, but every school has their own risk assessment and may not be able to accommodate instrumental/vocal lessons during the school day. If we are not able to deliver tuition within school, we will do our best to deliver this service online.

We want to inspire and support all children and young people to experience exciting, rewarding, varied and high quality progressive musical experiences, individually and with others. To achieve this, we create, deliver and promote opportunities for young people to make and learn music, improve and develop the quality of music education, and champion music education.
