Children's Music Classes in Edinburgh for pre-school, primary and secondary age groups.  

Children's Choir.  Children's Orchestras.

Saturday morning classes in musical play, musical workshop, musical foundations, musicianship, recorder, violin, viola, cello, choir, string orchestra, chamber music.  

Plus occasional special events and courses.

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

Classes will be delivered using a mixture of pre-recorded videos and live online classes until we are able to return to St. Thomas of Aquin's High School.

The current situation has financial implications both for EYM itself & for many individual families.  We now have a Bursary Fund, primarily but not exculsively intended 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.   


The aim of Edinburgh Young Musicians is to help all children to enjoy music, and to realise their individual musical potential, whatever that may be.
