In close partnership with other leading music education and performance organisations, we provide a year-round programme of creative opportunities, including mentoring, tutoring and intensive residential activity, to help students fulfil their musical ambitions.

Specifically, the Co-ordinator is responsible for the Apprentice Scheme, AYM Chamber weekends and specialist instrumental weekends.
