The Centre for Music Performance is a department of the University of Cambridge which enables students of all subjects and levels of musical experience – as well as staff and members of the local community – to make cocurricular music of all genres a core part of their lives.

The Centre runs an exceptionally broad programme of musical activities, from orchestras to DJing classes and from instrument lessons for beginners to masterclasses with world-leading performers.  It also offers practical support for an even wider range of student-run and college-based musical activity.

We believe that music is a fundamental part of a rounded education.  Our guiding vision is that nobody should be excluded from participating in music at Cambridge, and that everyone – from complete beginners to those who will go on to distinguished careers in music – should have opportunities at the University to achieve their musical ambitions and potential.
