Kickstart lifelong musical learning by joining our comprehensive programme!

Our young musicians programme offers everything you need for a successful and enjoyable start to learning an instrument: piano, violin, guitar, cello or flute.

Expert-led, small group lessons enable all the fun of learning with others, with the space and time for in-depth learning and meaningful progress.

We support all aspects of musical learning, and each term children from the course come together in bigger groups (online or in person!) to share their progress and enjoy making music together. Opportunities to and work towards qualifications help focus learning and give children opportunities to mark and celebrate their achievements.
