CMW's training offers practical and theory training in the key skills needed to work as a community music tutor in a wide range of community settings.
Our team building days have been especially formulated to be flexible to the requirements of business.
We have over 25 years experience developing and delivering workshops. We recognise that all groups have different issues and different needs. We'll discuss your group's needs and work with you to tailor activity for your time frame and budget.

We’d like to say a massive thank you (again) to the wonderful people of Penarth Acoustic Club for donating more equipment to Community Music Wales.
The club meet once a month at the Prince William Suite of Penarth Cons Club for a night of live acoustic music, poetry, or any performance suitable for a small stage.
All proceeds from their raffle go towards a charity, and in the past they have donated to MIND in the vale and more recently they donated £300 worth of ukuleles to CMW.
This time they have donated a plethora of samba equipment, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
So thank you, thank you, thank you Penarth Acoustic Club for your continued support, we hope you carry on being amazing for more years to come.
On 1-3 April 2016 BBC Wales, Arts Council of Wales and What Next? teamed up with the help of a number of fantastic organisations for a bumper weekend to celebrate the nation’s creativity – and CMW got involved. On Saturday the 2nd of April staff members and tutor Ron took a range of African drums into Cardiff city centre and set up outside the Owain Glyndwr to encourage passers-by to join in with some groovy drumming. Thankfully the weather was on our side and lots of wonderful people took a break out of their busy shopping schedules to make some music with us. True to form Ron led the group expertly and teased the nerves out of newcomers and encouraged everyone to just let go and enjoy the beat. After a few ice breakers and some rhythm games it was sounding awesome – and we even got a few rounds of applause, not bad for an hour’s work! It was great to see staff and members of the public step out of their comfort zone and enjoy the shared experience of making music. So thank you to everyone who joined in, whether you played a drum or just enjoyed watching, and thanks to the weather for keeping us dry and cheerful!
