The number of pupils talking part in music centres has increased by 50 per cent in the last 12 months.
The activities are linked to existing or new music centre groups and all players are encouraged to build on their workshop experience by joining one of these groups.
On Saturday June 14 Cleckheaton Music Centre Intermediate, Senior and Big Bands will take to the stage.
A performance by Hudders-field Music Centre Senior Band and St Joseph's and Dalton Primary Schools Mixed Ensembles will follow on June 21.
Ray Hutchinson, head of youth music, said: "There has been a 70 per cent increase in attendance at our county music centres
since we introduced our free access for instrumental and choral groups.
