What is the BYMT?

Bromley Youth Music Trust is an independent music service nationally renowned for providing a very high quality comprehensive and inclusive instrumental and vocal music education to the young people of Bromley and surrounding areas, as well as providing opportunities for performance in a wide range of settings to enhance the musical understanding and appreciation of pupils and the wider community.

This is achieved in schools through:

  • Individual and group tuition
  • Whole class instrumental tuition in Year 3 to all children in every primary school in the borough
  • Whole class bands as progression paths in both primary and secondary schools
  • The opportunity to perform as a school ensemble or choir at The Churchill Theatre as part of the biennial Bromley Schools Festival of Music
  • CPD, curriculum support and bespoke projects with BYMT's Head of Curriculum Teaching

Opportunities at BYMT's music centres include:

  • Structured bands, choirs, chamber music, keyboard classes, orchestras, & Music Theatre, for all ages and abilities including adults
  • Classes for 'early years'
  • Regular public performance opportunities in quality venues both locally and nationally
  • Regular holiday courses, workshops and masterclasses
  • Annual concert tours in Europe for the most advanced musicians
  • Participation in National Festivals.

BYMT is supported by a service level agreement and grant from the DfE through Arts Council England. These are supplemented by charges to schools and parents and partnerships with the local community.

BYMT became the leading partner in Bromley's 'Music Education Hub' in September 2012.

My eldest grandchild has been learning violin and playing in orchestras for the past 5 years and my granddaughter started cello in January. BYMT offers outstanding quality in its teaching and orchestras. Both grandchildren have benefited from their association with BYMT. The children in the Bromley area are very fortunate to have such an outstanding and comprehensive music school in their area.
