For our Saturday Centre courses we ask you to pay termly or by 10 monthly standing order instalments. We ask for a term’s notice if you decide to withdraw at any point.
A full term’s notice is required to stop attending CYM. This notice period is required to fulfil obligations to the professional tutors, pay for facilities and to encourage young participants to be fully committed to the courses they’ve chosen.
We regret it is not possible to give refunds in the event of absence as the Centre has to continue paying professional tutors and overheads. CYM expects as close to 100% attendance as possible, to ensure you get the most out of your studies.
Financial Support & Bursaries
Centre for Young Musicians (CYM) is supported by the registered charity, Foundation for Young Musicians (FYM) which fundraises to provide bursary support for students whose families are unable to pay the curriculum fees for any of our courses, including the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO) and the London Youth Wind Band (LYWB).
FYM's mission is to give all talented young Londoners access to high quality music education, irrespective of means to pay, privilege or chance.

FYM Bursaries are for students who study on the Full Programme. They are strictly means tested and can be applied for if your household incomes falls under £48,000.
