Taster Course

Taster Courses

CYM offer students the opportunity to learn less familiar instruments for a Taster period, normally of up to three terms, at a specially discounted rate.

The Taster lessons are offered, subject to availability, in the following instruments: Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Viola, Double Bass, French Horn, Percussion, Trombone and Tuba 

New applicants for the Taster instruments may apply to the Centre at any time. Applicants will be asked to attend an interview where they will be given a short ‘musical aptitude test’. Students offered a place on the Taster Course begin their lessons at CYM at the beginning of any of the three terms.

Taster Course students may opt to take choir and/or musicianship classes as well as receiving individual tuition.

Existing CYM students who wish to take up a Taster instrument may apply to the relevant Head of Department at any time. Places to existing pupils are offered to pupils only if their current work is of a sufficiently high standard.
