Your students

We provide all sorts of opportunities for young people to play and perform together out of school through our music groups (orchestras, bands, ensembles) and music centres and half term courses.

These students also get access to inspiring musical opportunities including recitals, masterclasses and workshops; the opportunity to perform at the Music for Youth regional festival at Cheltenham Town Hall – and sometimes, the national in Birmingham, or the final at the Royal Albert Hall!; and participation in other competitions, festivals and concerts.

Visit the youth groups section or call us on 01452 427242 to find out more.
