SATURDAY MUSIC SCHOOL (9–18 years)
Saturday Music School is part of the junior department of Leeds College of Music. Creative and vibrant, SMS delivers 30 weeks of ensemble and musicianship tuition to young people between ages 9 and 18. We believe a range of high quality musical experiences are essential for developing and nurturing talented young musicians.
Every Saturday morning during term time, young musicians come along to Saturday Music School for a fun yet challenging programme of three hour-long sessions that are tailored to their abilities and interests.
There are currently over 100 young musicians enrolled in Saturday Music School. Most of our students live in the Leeds area, but some travel from as far as North Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Staffordshire.
The SMS team is made up of musicians with a professional profile who are experienced educators with a passion for music.
We offer two routes depending on the student's interest. Please click on the courses below to find out more:
