Welcome to the Questors Young Musicians Club website. We are a Saturday music school based in Ealing, West London, providing high quality music lessons for children up to age 18.
We are very excited to be starting classes for children aged 18 months – 3 yrs. These will involve parental participation! 10:00 – 10:30 on Saturday mornings.
We re-opened in person for the last half term of the Summer Term, and hope to continue lessons at Little Ealing in September. We weren’t able to run our usual Open Day but our Virtual Open Day video is great if you aren’t sure about the different instruments and classes.
Pupil of the Week – while we were online we started asking teachers to nominate a pupil of the week – it was so successful we intend to continue this. Find out who was nominated here!
Summer Term 2021
We’re currently running online due to Covid. We’ve been doing this for a while now so our teachers are really good at it. If you’ve been thinking of starting an instrument or joining one of our groups for younger children, please contact us. Don’t let the pandemic get in the way! Giving your child an additional focus is a great idea – particularly as the days are getting shorter and opportunities for outside activities are decreasing. The Virtual Open Day video is great if you aren’t sure about the different instruments and classes.

Virtual Open Day
We would usually have a hands on Open Day at Little Ealing Primary School. Unfortunately this year we aren’t able to do this so we have produced a video with some information about QYMC and introductions to each instrument from our lovely teachers. Open Day Video If you click show more below the video on YouTube you’ll find links to each instrument separately if there’s a particular instrument you’re keen on.
After watching the video please use the contact form to get in touch.
At the moment it isn’t clear if we’ll be able to return to LEPS or whether we’ll need to continue remotely. We will follow the government guidance and if it is possible to open safely at LEPS that would be our preference.
QYMC reopened remotely on May 2nd and the Summer Term ran very successfully online. We are currently investigating the possibility of reopening in person in September if the guidance allows this.
We have over 100 classes every Saturday so our timetable is extremely complex! If you’re interested in starting an instrument or joining one of our Introduction to Music classes for children in Reception, please contact us.

Percussion places don’t come up often and as percussion is taught in 15 minute 1:1 lessons, places are only offered to pupils taking part in one of the Latin Percussion Ensembles. They will be expected to continue playing in ensembles as long as they are taking percussion lessons.
We are excited to announce that we have started a Junior Latin Percussion Ensemble for pupils from Year 2 upwards.
The ensembles play music from Latin America using drums and handheld percussion. Previous drumming experience is not necessary, so it’s a great opportunity for everyone to play some percussion! No experience necessary, just enthusiasm! All instruments provided. If you’re interested please get in touch

The QYMC Open Day 2015 was great!
Lots of families visiting and trying out the instruments. The bassoon and French horn were both very popular this year. Looking forward to lots of new classes starting in September. If you came to the Open Day and want to sign up for classes, use the contact form.
