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!

Aldeburgh Young Musicians: Exchanging Worlds

The ensemble Exchanging Worlds brings together 20 extraordinary members of Aldeburgh Young Musicians, who create performances through improvisation, composition, experimentation, digital media and game processes. The ensemble captures the sheer talent and raw energy of its young members, creating music which resists genre categorisation. 
Originally created for the London 2012 Festival, the ensemble made its debut at Latitude Festival 2012.
