About Us

Thornbury Area Youth Music

Thornbury Area Youth Music (formerly Thornbury Area Must Trust) run a number of Music groups from 9.30am to 12pm on a Saturday morning during term time.

Our key activity is running the Thornbury Area Music Centre, or 'TAMC'. This Music centre offers a range of activities for young musicians, up to the age of 18, of all abilities, including Senior and Training wind groups, string ensembles and orchestras. During the morning, there is also a choir, chamber ensemble coaching and opportunities for players to study for their grade 5 theory or practical musicianshiop examinations.

During the morning we also administer a number of 'Lets Play!' classes for those children, from the age of 6, who would like to start learning an orchestral instrument. Each September we open our doors to a new group of 'Let's Play!' musicians. In addition we run the Thornbury Area Junior Music Centre 'TAJMC' for those younger musicians aged 4-8, offering musical activities appropriate to those age groups.

As a charitable trust, TAYM are always happy to hear from potential sponsors, or those wishing to develop links with the trust. Please contact us for more information.
