The Peak District Music Centres (PDMC) is a charitable organisation whose purpose is to support and promote ensemble activities for young people in the Bakewell, Buxton, Hope Valley & surrounding areas. There are opportunities for singers and players of all orchestral and band instruments to make music together each week in a friendly and purposeful atmosphere.

There are currently 13 PDMC ensembles, encompassing beginners through to senior ensembles, which provide an opportunity for players to progress and evolve across many years of membership.

Musical activity is led by accredited music teachers but they also depend upon the support of many volunteers, mostly parents, who give their time and resources to keep music-making alive for young people in the Peak District.
