The Vaughan Centre for Young Musicians (VCYM), held from 4.30-6.30 pm, on ten Mondays each term, offers Primary School (age 8-11) boys the opportunity to extend their music curriculum and receive specialist music tuition.The VCYM provides each boy who attends with one instrumental lesson (either individual or in a pair for beginners on certain instruments) lasting between twenty and thirty minutes. Instruments offered are Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone & Guitar. Boys are provided with instruments on which to learn.

The remaining time is spent in musicianship classes, where the boys play in an orchestra, sing in a choir, use music technology, receive aural and rhythmic training and composing lessons. At the end of each term there is an informal concert where the boys perform. Reports are written twice yearly (at Christmas and Summer).The fees for VYCM 2022-23 will be £34.00 per session, £340 per term, payable in advance.

The deadline for applying for VCYM 2022-23 is 24 June 2022 and auditions will take place in July 2022. Please click on the following link: to apply.
