"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.


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.

Learning music benefits mental health and wellbeing but also teaches students many life skills that are transferable into their work and social lives.

If you live in Luton or attend a school here, you have the chance to learn a musical instrument. It is great fun, and you can make friends when you join one of our many music centre groups.

It really is a great ADVENTURE!
