Many classes have waiting lists, but things change quickly so it’s always worth getting in touch.
We also welcome pupils who have their instrumental lessons elsewhere but would like to join one of our ensembles, the singing groups or the orchestra, or come to study theory. The Junior String Ensemble is for players of just pre-grade 1 to grade 2/3 and there is a Senior String Ensemble for players of grade 4 – 8. We could use a bassoon player in the Orchestra! The Jazz group is always keen to hear from good players who’d like to improve their improvisation skills. Ensembles.
Parents are also welcome to join the orchestra, especially if they play ‘endangered species’ instruments such as bassoon and French horn!
Please note that we do not offer piano lessons.
QYMC is held on Saturday mornings at Little Ealing Primary School in South Ealing.
We’re keen to start some new initiatives so get in touch if any of these appeal:
- songwriting class
- Music Technology
