Aldeburgh Young Musicians Overview


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 courses, expert professional advice, mentoring, performance opportunities and much more – everything you’d expect from Aldeburgh Music, the world-class organisation behind AYM, and a national network of Centres for Advanced Training. 

Aldeburgh Young Musicians is shaping the musicians of tomorrow – helping young musicians push the boundaries of what they 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!
