Swindon Young Musicians offers opportunities for children, young people and adults to join together to make music.
Students work hard together to improve upon skills learned in instrumental lessons and benefit from playing a variety of musical styles. Most groups perform in end-of-term concerts, with some being invited to play at additional events such as festivals and competitions, as well as at community-based concerts and activities.
The value of such teamwork and commitment serves to lay good foundations and useful discipline for future personal development.
Swindon Young Musicians is run under the auspices of the Swindon Music Service with a dedicated team of experienced staff leading many different groups for children and young adults up to the age of 23.
Swindon Music Service moved to the Platform in 2012. After sympathetic refurbishment and the addition of RockPods and a recording studio, it has become an exciting new home for musical activities.
