Junior Academy

Junior Academy offers a fantastic opportunity to talented and committed young musicians who want to be inspired, challenged and encouraged in their aim to make the very most of their musical ability.

Whether you are still quite young and would benefit from the special focus of Primary Academy or are in your teens and ready for the full Junior Academy programme, you will find yourself amongst others who share your love of music and for whom Saturday is the most important day of the week.

Scholarships and bursaries are available.
