Welcome! The Centre for Young Musicians Taunton is a fantastic Saturday music school in the South West offering great opportunities to its students, with top quality music tutors with dedication and drive.
We are pleased to say we are currently teaching all lessons online. No face-to-face lessons are allowed during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Centre is a very friendly and very happy place full of like-minded, budding young musicians. It’s so much more than one individual music lesson and, for parents/carers, it represents excellent value for money.
If you have any queries please call 07754 217993.
HOW TO APPLY TO JOIN CYMT
To join CYMT for online courses in term-time, holiday courses or to request information please complete the online application form below.
The information provided on the online form will reach the Centre via email, then students’ parents/carers will be contacted by phone or email so the Head of Centre can devise a personalised timetable.
Once a place has been confirmed there are two additional forms to be completed by the parent/carer of each student: (1) the Carer Agreement, and (2) the Images Consent Form. These forms will be sent electronically, and are available in hard copy at CYMT, when new students’ timetables are sent out.
Note to parents/carers of students attending CYMT for Saturday courses in term-time: The Carer Agreement states that once established on the term-time courses at CYMT, after a trial period usually agreed to be one term, a term’s notice is required to stop attending. This notice period is required so the Centre can fulfil its obligations to the professional tutors and pay for the facilities, and to ensure a proper commitment is made by the young musicians attending. The students get the best of the Centre and out of themselves if they commit to attending every Saturday in term time, which also explains why there is no ‘drop-in’ option or fortnightly attendance option. Thank you for your understanding.
CYMT intends for the Autumn Term 2020 to start with an Activities Day / Induction Day on Saturday 12 September 2020 and the term begins on Saturday 19 September 2020.
