Music Centre Activities

MMF's Bands, Choirs, Orchestras and Ensembles

Merton Music Foundation provides a range of music making activities as part of its Merton Youth Music Programme at Merton Music Centre, Canterbury Road, Morden. The Centre offers a structured progression of centrally run instrumental groups, bands, choirs, orchestras and ensembles.

The case for involvement in music is overwhelming...

It has long been recognised that music can make a significant difference to the development of children. We know from recent research that the activity of music-making helps develop the mind and the personality in an extraordinary range of ways.

These can include increasing:

  • confidence and sense of achievement
  • powers of memory, concentration and self discipline

Friends of Merton's Young Musicians (FMYM)

Merton Youth Music has a thriving Parents' Association known as FMYM. Parents of all students are automatically considered as being members and a committee meets regularly to administer the affairs of the organisation, to arrange fund-raising events and to help with concerts and other events.

Through these efforts some of the more expensive instruments have been bought and large contributions have been made to the costs of music, major events like 'Music is for Life and overseas tours.
