Welcome to YMES.

YMES is an independent music service, offering a wide range of teaching and education services to schools and families. We arrange music lessons with expert teachers who are specialists in their discipline. We offer instrumental/vocal lessons on all standard orchestral and band instruments – and also provide schools with curriculum teachers and ensemble/singing directors.

Most of our provision moved online during lockdown. We had huge success with this online programme. It was offered to 100% of students who were previously taking small group/1-to-1 lessons with us and we lost no time getting set up – starting straight after the Easter holiday. Take up was about 80% and feedback from parents and schools has been extremely positive.

YMES is the provider of choice for an increasing number of schools and as schools reopen we have published detailed covid documents. Specialist teaching is available in a number of areas, from instrumental lessons through to PPA curriculum cover, and we pride ourselves on offering a flexible, personal service to schools – working with school staff to identify and address your particular priorities.

We have retained our online programme which is also available to new students – our brilliant teachers stand ready to help you and we have capacity across all instruments.
