About Us

At the Centre for Young Musicians we’re passionate about music, and so are our students. Many go on to have successful careers in music and the performing arts, or simply have the time of their lives taking their musical ambitions to the next level.

Our vibrant Saturday Music School is perfect for young Londoners aged 5-18 years old, to develop their creative and expressive skills. We are generously supported by The Foundation for Young Musicians , so we can offer bursaries for talented young musicians to fulfil their potential.

With more than 90 group performance activities taking place each week, our students don’t just learn, they perform; you only have to look at our termly magazine UPBEAT, to see the breadth and diversity. As a division of the Guildhall School – named in the Top 10 world Performing Arts institutions worldwide in 2016 – we can’t imagine a better place to spend a Saturday.

Join our special Anniversary concert at the Barbican on Wednesday 25 May to celebrate CYM @ 50 and LSSO @ 70. Through the anniversaries of these incredible organisations, our Young at Heart Appeal aims to shine a spotlight on 120 years of combined youth music making in London and raise £1 million for bursaries to enable 1,000 more students to attend CYM over the next decade.
