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. 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.


To join CYMT for a Saturday course, or the Summer Music Course 2018, please complete the online application form below. 

The information provided on the form will reach the Centre via email, then you or your parents/carers will be contacted by phone or email so the Head of Centre can devise a timetable personalised for you.

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) once the online application form has been received by CYMT.

Note to parents/carers: The Carer Agreement states that once established on the 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, so there is no ‘drop-in’ option or fortnightly attendance option. Thank you for your understanding.
