YYM is for promising young musicians age 8-19.

They may stand out because they:

  • Show commitment and dedication to music
  • Perform very musically or show creative flair
  • Show curiosity about music
  • Demonstrate potential to reach a high level


Ideal for young musicians who show a passion for music, to support GCSE or A level studies and for those considering music at conservatoire or university, YYM aims to develop a life long love of music for all.

Although there is no minimum formal grade or standard required to apply, places are auditioned and are awarded to students who demonstrate promise, musical performance and commitment to developing their musical potential.
