The Centre for Young Musicians (CYM) is a division of the Guildhall School and provides high quality progressive music training for thousands of talented children across the country. The original Centre is based at Morley College in London, close to Waterloo and the South Bank, and also has branches in Norwich, Taunton, Saffron Walden, Bristol and Peterborough. CYM teaching staff are experienced and respected performers and teachers working in many areas of the music profession.
