Aldeburgh Young Musicians (AYM) is shaping the musicians of tomorrow – pushing the boundaries of what young musicians can achieve.
It doesn’t matter what type of music or instrument you play – if you have passion and if music is your life, then join Aldeburgh Young Musicians and be the best!
Aldeburgh Young Musicians brings together like-minded young musicians to rehearse, perform and exchange creative ideas. If you are exceptionally talented, aged 8-18 years and have the potential to be the best, our distinctive programme is the perfect springboard to take your music to a new level.
Aldeburgh Young Musicians create their own programme, which coordinates individual lessons, intensive weekends and residential holiday courses, expert professional advice, mentoring, performance opportunities and much more – everything you’d expect from Aldeburgh Music, the world-class organization behind AYM, and a national network of Centres for Advanced Training.

The Aldeburgh World Orchestra Project
The AWO project brings emerging professional musicians from all over the world to Suffolk; to inspire, engage and perform; raising ambition and celebrating talent on a local to international level, as part of the London Cultural Olympiad in 2012
AYM Exchanging Worlds Ensemble
As part of Exchanging Worlds we will also establish a creative performance ensemble made up of exceptional young musical talent (under 18's) through Aldeburgh Young Musicians (AYM). This commissioning ensemble will be cross cultural and cross genre in content. Through collaborative working and the exchange of global musical conversations, new works will be created for performance at Snape Maltings and regional touring.
Alongside the ensemble AYM Composers will compose a fanfare for members of Aldeburgh World Orchestra, experiment with remote interactivity and take advantage of AWO mentoring opportunities. Finally, two young musicians will join AWO.
Exchanging worlds has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to help build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games across the UK.
