It's simple to register with PDMC. Newcomers are welcome at any time of the year for the younger groups, and players are invited to try one rehearsal for free. However, we do require that players are registered and payment is returned by the second rehearsal if the player would like to continue. Registration information for parents and our Terms and Conditions of Membership can be found at the foot of this page.

How to Register

Please click on the following link to our new online registration portal: PDMC Online Registration

Please follow this link to register your child/children for their ensembles.  You will then receive an automated email telling you that your child has been 'placed on the waiting list.'  Don't panic! This is simply a pause so that we can check that your children are registered for the correct ensembles, and to allow us to confirm new members with our Ensemble Directors.  We will send you an invoice for the final amount owing (including any discounts or remissions you are entitled to), which is confirmation that your child is registered for their ensemble.

Payment for PDMC membership can be made by electronic transfer (see the Information for Parents attached at the foot of this page) or by cheque (made payable to Peak District Music Centres). If you are paying by electronoc transfer, please use your child's name as a reference.  If paying by cheque please send this (along with the Invoice Slip) to the first rehearsal of the year in an envelope labelled with children’s name(s) and ensemble(s).

Please note there is a time limit for registration of 3 weeks from first attendance. Unregistered children are not members of the association and are not covered by our insurance. They will therefore be asked to stop attending if you do not complete registration, including the payment of subs / reduced place application.


Please note all players must become subscribed members of PDMC.  We do not offer pay as you go attendance at rehearsals.
