In addition to the main Saturday Centre the London Centre for Young Musicians organises a range of Holiday Courses, which are open to all of London’s young musicians regardless of attending CYM during term time.
London Schools Symphony Orchestra & London Youth Wind Band
CYM London also manages the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO) and the London Youth Wind Band (LYWB) – senior ensembles for players of Grade 7 standard and above with entry by audition (please see separate pages for details): LSSO & LYWB. You can also visit the Facebook pages here, https://www.facebook.com/londonschoolssymphonyorchestra/ https://www.facebook.com/LYWBlondon/
The London Schools Chamber Orchestra runs alongside the LSSO Christmas and Easter courses and acts as a springboard for less experienced string players into the LSSO.
Junior and Intermediate Summer Courses
Open access courses (no audition needed) which offer a stimulating, friendly, and highly enjoyable musical experience for children aged from 7 to 16. The courses are led by specialist tutors working alongside a caring team of pastoral staff and are designed to provide a progressive musical pathway for children, complimenting their regular term time activities both in and out of school.
The courses culminate in an informal performance open to parents and friends and include ensemble playing, orchestra, singing and creative work.
