Bedfordshire Youth Music Courses

The Bedfordshire Music Trust run courses for young musicians both independently and in collaboration with local music hubs.

Courses may take place during the school holidays or at weekends during term time. Experienced staff will tutor the students over the course and virtually all will culminate in a public performance

They cater for all orchestral instruments and cover a range of abilities, and there is also the Bedfordshire Youth Opera for aspiring singers! There is no audition requirement for any of our current courses but some might be by invitation only.

Aimed at students who are equivalent to Grades 1 and upwards. The two groups (the Wind Band and the String Band) will rehearse separately but come together for a wide range of musical and non-musical activities.

String, Woodwind and Brass players Grade 3 level and above who might wish to develop their small ensemble playing.

Singers and players put on a fully-staged opera production at the end of the summer break.

Singers aged 11 – 18 join a 2-day course to learn and perform a variety of styles.

This project is run in collaboration with our local music hubs. It is aimed at students of orchestral strings, woodwind (plus saxes), brass or orchestral percussion up to and including Grade 1 standard, and offers them a first experience of playing in a large orchestra!
