Friends of Medway Towns Music Centre
Medway Towns Music Centre is based at Fort Pitt Grammar School in Rochester and provides opportunities for young and old alike to receive music tuition, as well as offering the chance to meet other musicians and rehearse and perform in a wide variety of different groups. Currently some 250 people use the centre , ranging in age from 5 to over 80. The Friends is a charity established to support the work of the centre and to raise funds to purchase music and instruments for the benefit of the members of the centre. The charity also provides bursaries for those students who are unable to fund either their attendance at the centre or individual instrumental lessons. The music centre desperately needs to refresh it's music library in order that more different groups can be established and more modern and relevant music can be purchased to inspire the younger members and also attract new members to the centre. Music is very costly to purchase with some scores costing around £800 a piece to purchase for all instruments in the ensemble and can only be purchased through funds raised by the volunteers of the Friends organisation.
