Aldeburgh Young Musicians (AYM) is a progressive artist development programme for musicians aged 10-18, based at Snape Maltings Concert Hall. Part of the national network of Centres for Advanced Training, Aldeburgh Young Musicians facilitates the musical development of over 50 passionate young people, unlocking their potential through a range of inspirational and immersive residential courses and additional activities.

Members of AYM have access to some of the best musical training on offer, collaborating with expert professional musicians and like-minded peers to explore a diverse range of musical styles and approaches. Through interactive musical activities with an emphasis on autonomy, AYMs are encouraged to innovate as their creative selves.

Each AYM experience is unique. We work with a vibrant range of inspirational professionals who bring their own individual approach, expertise, and experiences to the programme. Find out more about AYM at one of our Open House events.
