Coronavirus up-date



Sadly we have had no choice but to cancel all in-person classes from mid-March 2020 until further notice.

Please click here for details of musical activities being offered in the meantime and to see what some EYM families have been doing.

We are currently working on the assumption that classes during the Autumn Term 2020 will be held online rather than at St. Thomas of Aquin's High School.

The current situation has financial implications both for EYM itself & for many individual families.  We are in the process of setting up a Bursary Fund, primarily to help current EYM families who may have difficulty paying our fees in the future.  If you would like to make a donation to help us through this very difficult time, or to contribute to the Bursary Fund, please click  https://www.totalgiving.co. uk/charity/edinburgh-young- musicians or contact us directly.
