Spring Term & Covid-19

CYM will be running online learning during the Spring Term. We know there is a real desire for a return to live musical interaction and look forward to welcoming students back to that experience as much as the situation allows.

Current government guidelines on performing arts activity will be adhered to. Social distancing will be observed for all in-person classes and group sizes will be appropriate to the rooms in which they take place, with the primary focus firmly on ensemble work. We will be working closely with colleagues at the Guildhall School, Morley College and Johanna Primary Academy to provide a safe environment. Procedures will be in place to ensure everyone’s safety, including when entering, exiting and moving around the buildings. CYM will be flexible and adaptive to the situation and react quickly to any change in circumstances or guidelines.

Online events will continue during the term so please follow our social media for all the latest news.


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.

This year, CYM celebrates its 50th birthday and the LSSO, its flagship organisation, is 70 in 2021. 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 10,000 more students to attend CYM over the next decade.
