The Peterborough Centre for Young Musicians (PCYM) is an exciting venture for the region’s young musicians.

Peterborough’s young instrumentalists will have the opportunity to train locally in association with, The Guildhall School, one of the world’s leading conservatoires.

PCYM is aimed at children and young people aged between 5-18 years. Acceptance will be based on, engagement, enthusiasm and musical potential with bursaries and free instrument loan available.

PCYM offers a comprehensive package of training, developing key skills in regular practice, instrumental and vocal technique, musical analysis and performance.

It is so lovely to hear from parents the impact PCYM is having for their children:"They are all thriving. They come home happy and have much pleasure playing their instruments or showing me what has been done in musicianship or ensemble and every Saturday afternoon they can’t stop singing !! The musicianship lesson, the one i was the most unsure of, turns out to be the perfect fit for my son. He enjoys the worksheets explaining with hands on the number of beats of notes, the different options to learn the pitch etc. Both piano teachers bring a lot of joy to my children who are very happy to carry on their work throughout the week. The same goes for our daughter in Musical Prelude, our shy little girl enjoys going there and feel very grown up indeed." ... See MoreSee Less
