About the School

Music Nation Leeds was founded in September 2012. The aim of the organisation is to promote music education and development in fun and engaging ways and to provide a variety of learning opportunities so that anyone can get involved in music, no matter what their current skills and aspirations are.

The school runs a variety of music programs that are as much about taking part and using your skills as they are about learning and developing them. Unlike the approach taken by many musical establishments and private tutors the school ethos is that learning and being involved in music can be much more than simply taking private lessons.

What's more, Music Nation Leeds is run from their own purpose created facilites in Farsley, Leeds. On the ground floor of one of the oldest mills in Yorkshire are the facilities that you need to make the most out of your learning. Visit our facilities page to find out more about this!
