The Music Learning Collective (MLC) is a Community Interest Company based in the East Midlands.

Since opening our doors in 2007, we have helped thousands of people to realise their potential throughout the UK, France, Italy and beyond. Our teachers work across our centres, in schools, colleges and universities, to deliver music education to the highest standards, all supported by our unique online platform. We support musicians at every stage of their journey but, above all else, we make it fun!


One of our goals is to open doors to the world of music for everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances.

We understand the transformative power of music and strive to connect with and empower individuals and communities wherever they may be.

By dissolving barriers to access to the arts and creative industries, we strive to bridge cultural divides and promote expression as a means for community cohesion and personal empowerment.

Our values revolve around our students, participants, partners, and teachers. We prioritise:

  • Creating a culture of warmth and belonging, where everyone is welcome
  • Delivering high-quality experiences in all that we do and holding ourselves accountable for results
  • Acting with courage, challenging the status quo, and seeking new ways to develop ourselves
  • Being present and transparent in our connections, promoting dignity and respect
  • Being performance-driven, flexible, caring, dynamic, supportive and inspiring
